The forest fire near Treskavec monastery reactivated on Friday morning, despite being put under control yesterday.

“The forest fire has suddenly reactivated near the monastery. More than 60 people, fire-fighters, volunteers are extinguishing the blaze”, said Prilep fire-fighting unit commander Stanko Koleski.

Moreover, there are two other forest fires in the Prilep region, near villages Nikodin and Bonce-Krusevica.

“We expect the Protection and Rescue Directorate fire-fighting aircrafts to be engaged in the extinguishing operations and hope they will be put under control during the day”, said Boris Jovanoski of the “Macedonian Forests” enterprise.
