FIRE ON BABA MOUNTAIN
Several hectares of pine wood and juniper bush are on fire which broke out late Tuesday on the Baba mountain, near the Strezevo channel, at the Meolica locality.
As reported by Makfax correspondents, because of the inaccessible terrain, the operation is carried out by teams of the Macedonian Forestry public enterprise - Kajmakcalan branch in Bitola, as well as the Fire Department.
The Macedonian Forestry enterprise hopes that the low temperatures and the snow cover would help in localizing the fire and stop it from spreading onto the opposite side of the Baba mountain, near the tourist project, Nize Pole.
MD: It's not so common to have such fires at this time of the year, but there's no news about how it has started though.
