The cantons of Lucerne, Schwyz and Zug have lifted the fire ban in the forest and near the forest on Monday. The rain of the past few days has led to a relaxation of the situation. Nevertheless, the authorities insist on caution.
The danger level is reduced from & # 39; large & # 39; to & # 39; significantly & # 39 ;, said the three cantons.
However, due to the regionally different precipitation levels, great caution should still be exercised, especially in the northern part of the Canton of Lucerne, with fires in the forest and close to the forest and outdoors, according to the Canton of Lucerne.
The Schwyzer Umweltdepartement writes the situation in sunny sun-drenched, south-facing forest edges and in wind influence. Locally, due to the already used leaf fall and the dry soil vegetation, the fire risk continues to increase.
In the cantons of Uri, Nidwalden and Obwalden there is still an absolute ban on fires in the forest and in the vicinity of the forest, according to the overview of the forest fire hazards of the federal agency for the environment. The Urner fire inspector Bruno Achermann said on request that they would wait for the next rainy season and then review the situation again. Especially in the Oberland the amount of precipitation was still low.
