Massive fire in Dropull, only 100 meters from residential areas
The flames are advancing near the houses in three villages of Dropulli. The fire only 100 m away from the residential area in the villages of Lugar and Gorricë also endangers the houses.
The firefighters of Dropulli have come to their aid, and the firefighters of Libohova and Gjirokastra, assisted by residents of the villages, are working to extinguish the flames.
But the fire is of great size and its spread due to the wind has made it impossible to extinguish it with ground forces.
The Mayor of Dropulli, Dhimitër Toli, has requested from the Civil Emergencies in Tirana intervention from the air to extinguish the massive fire, and help has also been requested from Greece, where the arrival of the helicopter is expected.
