Shrub fires out of control in Kvinesdal – wildfire helicopter – NRK Sørlandet – Local News, Television & Radio

– It burns on a challenging terrain, it is very challenging and now we have got a helicopter. It will work to get water on the ground, says Andre Proofsen, task force chief of the fire service.

Employees from four different fire stations are involved in extinguishing an uncontrolled scrub fire at Astordalen in Quinnestal, Akter.

The fire was reported just before 6pm on Monday. When firefighters arrived at the scene, the fire was burning.

The fire helicopter was on the scene at about 8 p.m.

Proofsen argues that the traditional method of extinguishing wildfires, called so-called wildfires, is not effective now because it is so dry. Water is needed.

Careless handling of matches

According to on-site police operations manager Train Dracland, the fire may have been caused by careless handling of matches.

– We talked to some kids about this, she says.

The police will file a case.

Buildings should not be at risk of spreading fire.
