We set off with support for their actions, the fire did not penetrate the Polish side of the Karkonosze National Park – said the spokesman of the Jelenia Góra fire brigade, younger Cpt.

He added that about eight hectares of mountain pine and dry grass cover burned down and undoubted damage is "natural losses resulting from the burning of the natural environment". – Nobody suffered, there was no danger for any buildings or vehicles. Dusting the fire and digging up the area will take many hours. However, the situation is already under control – the fireman said.
