Warm weather increasing risk of forest fires
The dry warm weather is leading to increased risk of forest fires and many cantons are bringing in strict rules.
The northwestern part of the country is the most affected – but all areas are being careful.
Many cantons have already banned fires in the forest and some have closed specific barbeque pits.
Many authorities are being particularly cautious at the moment as they don’t want emergency services diverted from the pandemic to fight fires.
