A fire broke out in Skopska Crna Gora, the mountain north of the capital Skopje, amid forests and low vegetation.

It is spreading in a difficult terrain, with little road access, and could endanger the villages Nikustak, Vistica and Matejce.

A fire-fighting team from the forest management company has been sent but so far they’ve been unable to reach the site. The Mayor of Lipkovo called on the Protection and Rescue Directorate to use the fire-fighting planes to put out the fire, but they still haven’t been sent out.
