A lodge used by mountain climbers in Pelister, over Bitola, was destroyed in a fire.

It is still not clear when the accident happened. Hikers shared pictures of the destroyed “Hunters’ Lodge” today. It provided shelter in a section of the hiking trails at a height of almost 2,000 meters.

Bitola already lost the Kopanki lodge, built on the ski trail above the central Molika hotel. It was burnt down in 2013 and remains unrestored.
