/ PHOTO GALLERY / Announcement of dense smoke from the forest near the village of Dolany in Olomouc told several people about the emergency fire brigade in the afternoon. The smoke was visible from a great distance, as confirmed by firefighting units on their way to a fire. The flames have absorbed part of the old stumps, the new plantations and the surrounding densely built burial mounds behind Horní Bouda, near Jivová
Six fire units have fled to the fire
"The fire discharges in an area about 100 times 100 meters, moreover, in a heavily accessible slope terrain, instead the units split up in some combustion departments where water tanks are gradually coming in. The transport of water is solved by a shuttle from nearby water sources in Jivova, "said the regional fire service spokesman Zdeněk Hošák
At present there are professional firefighters from Olomouc and Šternberk and volunteer units from Dolan, Bohuňovice, Bělkovic-Lašťan and Velké Bystřice.
"The fire is localized, but it will take a couple of hours to cough up, hide hidden eruptions and dig thoroughly, including dropping a lot of water," Hošák said
Why fires are in the woods  "The amount of damage was provisionally determined at 170 thousand, the saved values are high and two million crowns, everything went without damage", the spokesman added.
