Svishtov. The fire that broke out last night at a former landfill near Svishtov has been contained, Svetlin Mihaylov, head of the regional fire department, told Focus Radio - Veliko Tarnovo.
The suppression operation is ongoing, the firefighters’ efforts are hampered by strong winds. Two firefighting crews and volunteers are on the scene, Mihaylov said. The flames have been restricted to the area of the landfill, there is no danger of the fire spreading to the nearby residential area and the forest, he said. The firefighting activities are challenged by the specificity of the terrain – it is a large area, the landfill burns deep, there is a lot of waste. The causes of the incident are yet to be established once it has been completely extinguished.
