Only a few days after the brutal fires that consumed parts of Dalmatia, a Polish man has been detained in Montenegro for doing exactly the same thing.
A Polish citizen has been detained in Montenegro on suspicion that he started a fire that engulfed forests and reached near houses in a southern area along the Adriatic coast.
Unbelievable. The fires in Dalmatia caused the main A1 motorway to be closed, and anyone that's seen the video from Dalmatia knows just how bad those fires were. The thought of someone intentionally starting a fire after that is just unbelievable.
Authorities say that firefighters have battled the raging fire throughout the night, while the situation remains serious. They have urged local residents to cut the shrubbery on their land to help stop the fire from spreading.
Montenegro is a small country with very limited resources, and who knows what damage was done elsewhere while firefighters were tied up with this fire?
Hopefully the book gets thrown at him for this.
