Over 200 fire beacons take part in 5th edition of “Celtic Telegraph”

Over 200 fire beacons are taking party in the 5th edition of “Celtic Telegraph”, sending light signals across the Czech Republic. The event kicks off with the lighting of a beacon at Velká Javořina on the Czech-Slovak border; from there, the light signal will be handed over through several routes to other parts of the country as well as Slovakia. The event, held in homage to Celtic tribes which once inhabited Bohemia and Moravia, has however come under scrutiny by environmentalists and firefighters who warn no fire making in nature reserves will be tolerated.
