Albania is on fire. The extreme temperatures of these recent days continue to generate new wildfires throughout the country. Some 9 blazes were registered during the last 24-hours, the National Civil Emergencies (NCE) reported.
Numerous firefighters, army's troops and voluntaries continue to battle with the flames to prevent the situation from getting worst. Helicopters intervention has become necessary in some areas due to the broken terrain that impedes firefighters from reaching the blazes.
The situation is being continuously monitored by the authorities who renew the appeal to the citizens to immediately report any sign of fire in the emergency numbers or the police number.
