Berlin's green lung victim of a fire

It’s a “disaster for ecosystems”. On the site of the Berliner Zeitung, specialists and politicians are concerned about the environmental consequences of the fire in Grunewald, in the south-west of Berlin.

“Part of the fire is now extinguished, specify the string ZDF on Twitter. But the highway and the adjacent railway line remain closed.” The site is also still considered to be “dangerous”, ammunition and bombs dating from the Second World War being stored nearby. Thursday, August 4, several explosions were heard at the scene.

This fire – which broke out on Wednesday August 3 in a Berlin forest, not far from an ammunition depot – is indicative of the risks facing the German capital, one of the most wooded in the world.
