The forest fire in the Lieberoser Heide, one of the largest former military training areas in East Germany, continues. “We have embers about 15 to 20 cm deep in the ground. But there are no more open flames,” said a spokeswoman for the Dahme-Spreewald district in the morning. “The situation is stable. The rain relaxed during the night”.
Accordingly, preventive measures could be started yesterday evening and the fire strips expanded. The fire, covering an area of 86 hectares, did not spread any further overnight.
