Controlling forest fires in Balkans is on-going problem

Forest fires continue to burn across parts of Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Macedonia. The fires are affecting both forests and farmland that have been subject to extreme heat waves and the worst drought in 50 years. Land mines left over from the Balkan wars have made fire fighting all the more dangerous. Travellers should exercise caution and avoid the affected areas since the fires may spread in unpredictable ways.
