Germany, have been working hard to put out a fire at a military facility in southwestern Berlin. The facility is used to store German abandoned ammunition. Firefighters cannot enter the facility to extinguish fires because of the large amount of dangerous ammunition stored therein.
Local officials said, “We (the disaster relief personnel) can not risk the explosion of ammunition to go to the scene to fight the fire.” The official also said that the fire brigade also used helicopters to extinguish fire from the air. The fire range has not yet been determined, but the fire column that was vacated from the scene of the fire judged that the fire was “very violent.”
Russian media believe that the fire was caused by the strong winds and extreme heat that have recently ravaged the region. In the vicinity of the fire, the local temperature has reached 41 degrees Celsius in recent days, setting a record for Germany’s hot summer weather.
Due to the continuous high temperature, there have been many fires in German military facilities. In June of this year, a fire broke out at a German abandoned base, igniting the surrounding forests, and the area of fire was 750 hectares.
