Bohemian Switzerland fire could be completely extinguished within a week

Firefighters could completely extinguish the fire in the Bohemian Switzerland national park by the end of next week, fire brigade spokesperson Martin Kavka told the Czech News Agency on Sunday. A more precise handover date and a preliminary schedule for reducing the number of firefighters deployed in the park will most likely be announced on Monday.

The sectors to the south of the Kamenice river, possibly even the gorges, could be handed over to the national park administration during the week, even earlier than Friday, August 12, which was the previously mentioned date. However, Mr. Kavka emphasised that the handover does not mean that the public will be able to enter these areas immediately.
