Bulgaria: Bulgaria: Fire raged all night in the Maritsa-Iztok Mines @BGNES

A fire broke out last night in Mine 2 of "Mini Maritsa-Iztok". Four fire crews tried to put it out all night. This morning, heavy equipment will also be involved to continue extinguishing the hard-to-reach areas.

Swamps in the area make extinguishing difficult. Dense vegetation and hard-to-reach areas are also a problem.

There is no danger to people in nearby settlements. The nearest village is located 3 km from the flames. The workers in the mine are not in danger either. The fire is at a great distance from the heavy mining equipment.

There is no coal at the scene of the fire. Dry grasses are currently burning on the mine embankments.
