A large fire broke out at Dartmoor in Devon’s English County. Swampy and heathland are known for their Bronze Age tombs and stone circles such as township marks.
The fire was seen on Thursday evening at a width of about five kilometers, the Dartmoor National Park administration announced on Friday. What happened to the fire is still unclear. However, it is prohibited by strong winds, National Park emergency staffer Rob Stimson said.
As the fire brigade announced, extinguishing was extremely difficult due to weather conditions. Therefore, the flames will be prevented from spreading further for the time being. Human lives are not in danger.
Nevertheless, the fire brigade warned spectators not to approach the fire. Some people tried to see the fire or take pictures of it. “It is extremely dangerous and certainly not an urgent visit,” said Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service on its Twitter account.
