The deputy leader of the rescue service in Strömstad is upset.
"Yes, we will do nothing but continue digging for campfires and clearing people who have tents, I hope that someone who reads this understands that only because the fire ban has ceased, you can not cook anything." It is the one who holds the competition that full responsibility ", says Glenn Gustafsson.
The ban on barbecue and fire fighting was removed a few days ago in Strömstad, but the risks of building different types of fire in nature are still high.
– On Thursday, the ban on barbecue and fire fighting was lifted. Then people think that it is free to behave anyway. Just because the ban has been lifted, the danger of burning in forest and land has not yet been done, "says Glenn Gustafsson.
I have found a glowing fire

"We had to perform fire pumps with quads and digging and dumping, there were two types of campfires, where stones were laid on the hill and shot and then disappeared, we dug the ground around the places for three to four hours. is that there is a fire that spreads in roots and the soil layer, "says Glenn Gustafsson.
Can be forest fire
The rescue service succeeded in getting the fires under control, but the next time things went less well, according to the head of state.
"One can make a contribution to the other, we saw open fire when we turned down there and the flames flared up, and it could spread like a forest fire anyway," he says.
