Topics Environment, Fire, Military, Photography, Photojournalism
A heat-wave in early July in Germany led to fields and forest drying out. In Lübtheen a wildfire was sparked - likey by an arsonist - leaving thousands of Hektars burning on a former military training area that is full of left-over ammunition. Villages were evacuated. Fire-workers were not able to approach the area burning due to the danger of exploding old ammunition spread all over the place. Police and military helped fighting the wildfire. Helicopters and water cannons were used in the attempt to shut off the fire. Journalists were held back from the area. In the end the fire was isolated and left burning. It was declared the biggest wildfire in the history of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
