Large fires in the east and west cause millions in damages...

Fire-fighters in two separate parts of the country battled blazes on Thursday that caused millions of crowns in damages. In the southeast Moravian town of Zlín a large, 360-unit residential building took light in the town’s largest suburb of Jižní Svahy. Meanwhile on the other side of the country in near South Bohemian Strakonice, a high-capacity straw warehouse containing over a thousand tonnes of straw and hay caught fire during the night. The damage is estimated at 19 million crowns. The respective fire departments are investigating the causes of both fires; no one has been injured in either incident.
