US Government Started Massive Wildfire That Burned 432 Homes – Now Feds Are Forcing Victims To Pay For It

Hi @NancyDrewberry

THEY have given themselves immunity, with their "Burn Bosses, etc. THEY want to make home owners pay for "fire/proofing" their homes, and the damages caused by the government. Another SCHEME for transferring wealth.

This is Universal, as many countries have adopted Floridas "Book of Burns". Including Andalucia Spain and a whole host of others.

Florida is in the lead with prescribed fires [Rx], and unfortunately they are at the center of a global fire regime with far reaching arms.

This letter was in response to a culture of recklessness, and the use of fires causing the destruction of the environment.

GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN
AND THE EARTH

Genesis

1:11. And God said let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed (and) the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed (is) in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

1:25 And God made the beasts of the earth after his kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that (it was) good.

1:31 And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, (it was) very good...

Sura

20:6 To Him belong what is in the heavens and on the Earth, and all between them, and all beneath the soil.

Deuteronomy

10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens (is) the "I AM"'s thy God. The earth (also), with all that therein (is).

We hope you are well, in good spirit, and having a good day.

Today we are writing to you, to put an end to the policies, practices, and procedures that have become part of a cultish system in the state of florida, (hell bent) on annihilating these lands, and the planet you claim to be stewards of.

We all have to live in harmony with each other and with nature, and yet your continuous use of fires, for purported control of "land management", "agriculture", as well as for "conservation" have contributed to climate change, greenhouse gas effect, and El Nino, (wind pattern changes). All a direct result of deforestation and fires. Thus, depleting the life sustaining oxygen from the air and increasing carbon dioxide and acid rains.

All poisons to life itself.

We did not come here to destroy the earth, we came here to learn to be good.

Genesis

2:15 And the "I AM" God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Not to set fires to. Not to make merchandise of.

Deuteronomy

20:19 thou shall not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shall NOT cut them down to employ (them) in the siege (nor for market economics) (for the tree of the field [is] man's [life] Oxygen).

Well over 2/3's of the Earth’s forests have been cut down already, whilst you’re working on destroying the rest of what is in your own backyard. Forests, bushes, shrubs, trees, vegetation, flowers, insects, plants, reptiles, amphibians, the entire eco system. What used to be revered for its heavenly beauty, its awe, its presence, {God's Green Earth}, is now looked upon and referred to as fuels for potential future wildfires. A source of income for businesses, politicians, and any and all who partake in this assault, wreckage, and democide.

You will be held accountable.

Revelation

11:18 And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the Time of the "Dead" (Matt. 8:22), that they should be Judged, and that Thou shouldest give reward unto Thy Servants the Prophets, and to the holy people, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the Earth.

You claim to have purchased millions of acres of land in florida, to uphold and maintain it. From whom did you purchase this land, as it all belongs to Almighty God, and do you have a bill of sale for said purchases? As a government has no money, except what it takes from the people, how does the government own anything?

If this continues, there will be nothing left for future generations. Is this the legacy you want to leave for your children?

As Florida states in its 190.125 Statute, its responsibilities lie in 1. Wild life Mitigation 2. Agriculture 3. Silviculture 4. Conservation.

Let’s see how you have fared in this endeavor thus far.

You say, Rx, ("prescribed burns/ controlled fires") are a land management tool, a measure to reduce wildfire risks, to maintain the ecological integrity, to manipulate vegetation and game, and to reduce the risk of property loss.

Yet In reality, when we put aside the slick word smithing, it is for state wide economic purposes. How much can you fill the coffers? It's all about Big Business and profit over people. Mining plays a critical role, and now so does the facilitation and installation of the 5G control grid. One of the most evil and criminal acts perpetrated on mankind - a genocide. This grid wont function with all these trees in the way, as they block the beam forming waves, so part of the strategy is to take em' all down.

It is a weapon if war. Crowd control, (ADs), Direct Energy Weapons (DEWS), and its link to "corona virus" is well documented, as well as numerous patents with ties to a very evil agenda.

Just recently the loons over at CNN called for just that, to take down all the healthy trees and to bury them in the ground to save the planet. Maybe this is why many forests are digging trenches now. (For the trees, and not for the accumulation of bodies that will soon begin to pile up.)

According to your own data, it is quite clear that wild fires vs. Rx fires are in complete contradiction to your claims of reduction of property loss, conservation, and as a measure to reduce wild fire risks.

The Report on Fires and Acres burned by state agency, this year alone dated 5/19/22, states:

In Florida, an average of 17.6 acres burned during the course of one wild fire. Of the 1,812 WF's, that occurred, 32,046 acres were consumed.

Yet a shocking 1,211 acres burned on average, per prescribed burn (Rx). Out of 214 fires that were prescribed, for a grand total of 259,184 acres of Florida lands burned.

That is insanity.

There is nothing "conservative"

about this. What property is being saved here?

Common sense and wisdom found no place to live on earth.

Fires disrupt the ecological integrity of the land, promotes drought, creates air pollution, poisons the water supplies, and the grasses, such as saw grass, a native plant that has been wiped out.

The chemicals, fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides utilized accelerates the ruin of the Florida lands, and keeps Monsanto (Monsatan) in business, one of the evilest Companies on earth.

According to the training manual for prescribed burns:

  1. Setting fires is inherently dangerous

  2. They harm people, environment, animals, insects, eco system

  3. Alters plant composition

  4. Raises PH

  5. Contributes to the loss of the forest floor.

  6. Clogs the soil with ash

  7. Accelerate rates of oxidation and decay

  8. Increases soil temperatures

  9. Bacteria declines after a burn, but returns 3-10-Fold within 1 month

  10. Evaporation

  11. Rx fires escape and become wild fires

  12. Smoke causes unforeseen problems.

  13. Mistakes will be made in the future

  14. Many injuries and deaths have occurred because of a prescribed burn

  15. Behavior of a fire can be underestimated, or precautions not observed

These are just a few of the pitfalls of Rx burns.

You will also find that they do not do a long-term study on the effects of these fires on small mammals, reptiles, amphibians. Why?

Several campers have complained of the Rx burns whilst they are in the forest camping. They are not warned of the fires, heat stresses, escape routes, pollutants, particulate matter, and smoky areas to avoid. Mainly they don't want to be around the area you feel you need to burn, as many of the fires have gone "out of control".

Look what happened just recently in Santa Rosa County Fl., and in Pensacola as well.

James Calkins the Commissioner of Santa Rosa said, "What happened here is absolutely disturbing", "They are trying to burn our County down, that is why people don't trust our government. They are literally burning our stuff down on purpose. There is an outside entity that makes the decisions, but it's our community resources that get used up each time these fires get out of control". The Northwest Florida Water Management District meant to "thin" 2000 acres, yet this fire wasn’t able to be contained, threatening homes and lives in Dickerson City. Why was the green light given by the Florida Forest Service to burn, when the weather conditions were high winds. Who signed off on this, I want their name said Bob Cole, Chairman.

Channel 3 reached out to Nikki Fried the Agricultural Commissioner, yet their phone calls were NOT returned.

In a nearby area, another "controlled" fire which became Out of Control destroyed 14 homes and over 2300 acres and cost estimates over 2 million dollars. No criminal charges were filed.

That's a nice perk these Burn Bosses get thanks to legislation Florida enacted, (Unlawful). They are given immunity from liability and damages incurred when these fires run (out of bounds) or out of control. The Fl. Forest Service also receives immunity from liability in their own separate chapter in the Fl. Statute.

In Eastport Florida just recently, 36 homes were destroyed by another prescribed burn that ran out of control.

It seems this is more common than what is reported by your own experts’ testimony, "The continued use of fire depends upon the support and active participation of professionals dedicated to suppression of wildfires, MOSTLY WE ARE Forever INDEBTED to the forest ranger and other suppressors who have CAUGHT THE ONES THAT GOT AWAY.

What about the ones they didn't catch, THE ONES THAT DID GET AWAY? They are now labeled as a wildfire, so what is the true count of wildfires vs. Rx fires?

Is this also where the ART and science of fire manipulators comes in?

According to an US FOREST SERVICE Officer, Jack Cohen, thinking we can thin our way to low density fires is the farthest thing from the truth. Despite what Industry says, thinning or clearing of Forests is not stopping or halting catastrophic wild fires.

OOPS! BREAKING: The Biden Administration says it started all of New Mexico's LARGEST Wildfires

Forest Service says it started all of New Mexico's largest wildfire | Reuters

The Ruler of this Universe has told us the blessings we would receive for obeying His Laws. The land would be plentiful and in abundance, He would make it grow wonderfully, and beautifully. He would bless us and all that is therein. There would be no need for fertilizers, chemicals, Terminator seeds (GMO), or Frankenstein foods because there would be no disease, crops would produce enough for everyone, not just the few. Just as The Lord has promised, including all the animals. There would always be enough grazing food for the cattle and deer if the land wasn’t burned down.

If we failed to listen and do what is right and just for all, then the land would fail, oppression would occur, pestilence and disease would run rampant.

Take a good look around you, because we are living it right now.

2 Esdras

8:50. For many great miseries shall be done to them that in the Latter Time shall dwell in the world. Because they have walked in great pride. [They damaged the environment and life support system for money]

Big bucks are spent on Marketing firms and advertisers trying to drum up support to "change the attitudes of the public toward fires". They want you to believe we need them to start fires. They are even hoping to turn Smokey the Bear into the bad guy, for wanting to put forest fires out.

SMOKED OUT: Smokey the Bear's campaign to prevent forest fires worked a little too well for its own good. (Image by Kara Brown)

A cultural change is encouraged so that residents will realize that tolerating a little smoke from a "good" fire will help to stop the destructive fires that cloud the air for weeks. Promoting the idea that thinning it, "restoring" the land would make it less prone to wildfires.

It doesn't matter how many fluff pieces or how many flyers or fear tactics are spread about, because the fact remains that in the last 5 years, cleared land burned with just as much intensity as lands that were not cleared.

The Holiday Farm Community Fire was heavily logged and still 173,000 acres burned, which received no protection from the so-called thinning.

All of these statutes and ordinances that don't conform to God's Perfect Royal Laws of Liberty, are Null and Void. Period.

Florida logic looks at targets as potential future fires, if this is so, will all Floridians who own homes, buildings, or structures made from wood, have to worry that their property is in danger of a potential future WF, therefore, it needs to be burned to the ground?

When the money keeps rolling in, I suppose it's hard to say no.

Like the $$$300 million from the National Prescribed Burn Act of 2021. Or the $$$5 billion Infrastructure Bill, which Secretary Vilsack announced is a ten-year plan and strategy to Confront Wildfires, inclusive of burning 20 million acres of forests, and 30 million of state, tribal, and private lands, for thinning and restoring America’s Grasslands. The absurdity of it all.

That is an area 6x's the size of Delaware, Joe Biden.

Fl. Forest Service and the Wild Fire Insurance Industry wants home construction to be resistant to fires. Thus, making the people pay for your negligence. They are also calling for a clearing of the land, (deforestation).

A little tidbit, just days after the fire in Sept. in Oregon, a Bill sponsored by Diane Feinstein, promoted the expansion of Rx burns, clearing the land, logging, and funding for construction of fire-resistant housing.

Imagine that a bill written so quickly after the fires that destroyed so much.

Sounds like problem, reaction, solution. Hegelian dialectic. And possibly a Rx opposed to a WF.

One Representative from Oregon Greg Walden, equated the Government’s management of the land to Slum Lords. He is quite right in that assumption just going by the records.

Jeremiah

2:7 And I bought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled My land, and made Mine heritage an abomination.

So many are benefitting from the raping and pillage of the land, but soon enough they will realize you can’t eat money.

When all of the trees are cut down,

When all of the rivers and lakes are polluted,

When all the fish have been caught from the sea

Then and ONLY Then will you realize You Can’t Eat Money.

Some interesting facts to note in Florida, 1. The majority of auto accidents are listed where smoke is a contributing factor, most of which come from controlled burns.

  1. The majority of homes burn because of flying embers, Not the flames. Therefore, the measurement of the vegetation on the floor of the forest is a poor predictor, or indicator for wild fires and property loss.

  2. Electric Companies are now to shut down the grid in high winds.

Florida burns 8% of its land each year, this is most likely underestimated, as the players are ramping up their efforts.

70% of all controlled burns nationwide occur in Florida.

You can literally see Florida burning from outer space. Smoke plumes DOT the landscape.

Florida on fire

When it comes to agriculture, the Sugar Cane Industry in Florida is the country’s largest producer. It is a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate. As for the health and safety of those in surrounding areas Florida can learn a lot from Brazil, which is the world’s largest producer of Sugar Cane. They changed the Industry, and paved the way for a better future for all.

1654625955272blob

What happens when Florida allows Sugar Cane Farmers, (Sugar Daddy’s) to burn the fields.

The burns last typically 1 hour, on approximately 25 fields for about 4 months.

Many proven hazardous toxins and particulate matters are released into the air and waterways, eventually penetrating the soils. The air quality suffers, the health of the residents in nearby and surrounding areas, even outside the so called "safe zones" suffer. The environment and entire eco system suffer.

Many countries have banned this practice because of all the damage it does.

The pollution from the emissions in the air in high burn areas is especially high in PAHs polycyclic atomic hydrocarbons. Some of the most toxic pollutants, and the Sugar Cane Industry in Florida is responsible for 1/2 of the PAHs in the air and 89% of the country’s gaseous pollutants.

The burns cause a PM2.5. This particulate matter has been studied conclusively and findings show, links to cancer, heart attacks, strokes, asthma, birth defects, respiratory diseases, genotoxicity. Even the EPAs own 2021 study, wherein President Biden stated that the PM2.5 Industry Standard has to be changed because of all the long-term as well as short-term ill health effects.

The Atomic Chemistry and Global Change Research Group said, "Wild fires and Rx fires are the major source of air pollution in the country."

Clearly as these practices continue, the DEP, and the Department of Agriculture are not protecting the public's interest or health

In 2019, 40,000 joined suit against the Sugar Cane Companies and filed for damages suffered to their health. A corrupt judge dismissed the case and it was amended to include carbon monoxide and ammonia as biproducts from their burns rising in the smoky air. The Sugar Daddy's scoffed at that.

Florida Senator Farmer, and Representative Eskamani proposed SB 1102, and HB 6085 to "Reinstate" the air quality Floridians once enjoyed prior to SB 88 which passed, that was backed by the Sugar Cane Industry. This bill, under the guise of Right to Farm Act, gave immunity to the billion-dollar Sugar Cane Farmers, from their toxic pollutants, particulate matter, a result of their burns harming people and environment. This stripped the residents of their day in court.

So now these Farmers think they can poison you with impunity, as both these bills died in the house and senate.

SĂŁo Paulo Brazil, the largest producer of Sugar Cane in the world took steps to improve not only the health of the residents, but the air quality and environment as well.

Black snow, or soot from the SC Burns blanketed the areas after burns. Young, old, rich, poor, they all protested, and came together en masse and the government listened. They spoke of the illnesses they suffered, the soils being ruined, the poor air quality, the nutrients and minerals depleted from the grounds, how nature and animals suffered.

And the government passed a law that they would phase out burning by 2021, and they have.

They sought alternatives and went from burnt cane to raw cane. The government called for ethanol production as an energy alternative. The straw that they used to burn now blankets the lands and protects the seeds. The rest of the straw is gathered to harness clean electricity at a profit.

In Florida the straw is looked at as useless, whilst the Sugar Cane Daddy's go around the neighborhoods with their fear porn tactics and flyers stating that if the straw is left on the floor snakes would come into their yards, and it is a fuel for a wild fire.

FEAR FEAR FEAR

We can cultivate and grow our land in the way of Our Lord, with milk and honey, (loving kindness), as God will nourish it with His blessings.

Paul Gautschi is a good example of a true "land manager", "maintainer of ecological integrity" and his famous "Back to Eden" Garden. He shares many tips and insights in his Garden.

He follows The Lord's advice and wisdom, and it shows on his land, as he shares it all with the world.

There is also a farmer in the UK Martin Crawford who grows 500 different species with only a few hours of work a month in his forest garden.

As one soul paving the "Way" in the wilderness put it, planting all manner of trees to be used for food in the land, is stipulated in The Law, so planting many edible trees in the land is a step in the right direction:

Leviticus

19:23 And when you shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised to you: it shall not be eaten of.

19:24 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise "I AM" (withal).

19:25 And in the fifth year shall ye eat if the fruit thereof, that it may yield into you the increase thereof: "I (am) the "I AM" your God.

Enoch

10:23 And then shall all the holy people give thanks, and live until they have begotten a thousand children, while the whole period of their youth, and their Sabbath's shall be complete in peace. In those days all the Earth shall be cultivated in righteousness; it shall be wholly planted with trees, and filled with benediction; every tree of delight shall be planted in it

10:24 In it shall vines be planted; and the vine that shall be planted in it shall yield fruit to excess; every seed, which shall be down in it, shall produce for one measure a thousand, and one measure of olives shall produce ten measures of oil

Aristeas

5:24 I have permitted this digression because it was Eleazar who pointed out with great clearness the points which have been mentioned. For great is the energy which they expend on the tillage of the soil. For the land

Is thickly planted with multitudes of olive trees, with crops of corn and pulse, with vines too, and there is abundance of honey. Other kinds of fruit trees and dates do not compare to these.

He points out that lots of edible trees and plants then also attract the bees, which produces honey, which brings more insects and trees, and in turn more birds, all of which is good for people and the environment.

He clearly shows that by following even a single stipulation in The Law faithfully, brings positive changes to the land and people.

If Florida looked at the land here from The Lord's perspective, like Mr. Gautschi or others, then blessings are bound to happen.

You would then truly be stewards of the land, and you could also solve the food shortages that are occurring, as there would be plenty for all, and not just the few.

HI @NancyDrewberry

In regards to arsons, There is a ramping up of fires now, which will suit the needs of the PTSB.
THEY literally want to democratize a fire regime.
Fire fills several needs for the demented mind.

It's another form of control. Some use it as a way to pay homage to false gods.
Another way to instill fear, and change legislation, codes..., and make one pay for the destruction of humanity, right along the lines with the genocidal JABS.

A behavior change is what they are looking for in terms of how people look at fires, like a snow storm or tornado.

They would love it if you got used to a fire... So THEY can keep on burning, and keep the money rolling in. Climate change, insurance, building smart cities - (regulations of course, would mean you would have to purchase their products, that would make your home fire safe, according to "the experts") with the materials made in China/ which would... Probably burn your house down.

There are arsonists who for whatever reason decide to start fires, but, the majority of forest fires, start out as a controlled burn, and usually the government has its hand on the matches.

Millions upon millions of acres burned every year for logging, mining, agriculture, grazing, climate change, etc., it is a corrupt culture of money and greed with an extra perk of genocide.

It is satanic, and the politicians keep pouring more and more money into this insanity.

And it looks like according to their agenda, things are just starting to heat up​:fire:

Forest Fires in Southern Europe: An Econometric Investigation of the Existence of Economic Incentives for Fire Arson
By Radoslava Dogandjieva

...Seemingly, they ought to be borne by the
communities at risk – an idea that has spawned the trend of contingent valuation, or a sort
of payment-in-kind measurement. This method has been applied to gauge communities’
willingness to pay for forest fire prevention. For example, Hung et al. (2007).
...All of the research outlined above, when grouped together, succeeds in portraying
forest arson as an economic phenomenon.

Doesn't the Chatham House want to burn everything down?

If "lone" arsonists are in the viewing lens, one might ask if they too are receiving incentives, or are they just a scape goat?

It was supposed to be a controlled burn, but a New Mexico fire got out of control

July 20, 2022

more about the NM fire that was suppose to be a controlled fire but somehow was allowed to burn out of control. This below is what home owners said about Forest Services. It would seem fires are a money maker like wars, war on people and their homes, to destroy their livelihoods further know as depopulation agenda, seems it all ties together to support their evil satanic agenda.

Killing trees is against God's Law - specifically Deut. 20:19-20 , Matt 5:17-20 : their human-food producing quality: including LIFE giving Oxygen. When breaking the Law of God curses curse will surly come upon them.

FORDHAM: And what angers her the most is that this fire, the Calf Canyon Hermits Peak fire, began as planned burns by the U.S. Forest Service, which escaped control.

NARANJO: All of us are feeling the same grief and anger towards Forest Service that is so intense. I actually wanted to sit and get a bucket of ashes from our house and send it to the Forest Service because they are accountable.

FORDHAM: This isn't the first time the Forest Service allowed what was supposed to be a controlled burn to escape in New Mexico with devastating consequences. In 2000, an escaped planned burn destroyed about 280 homes and damaged the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Small Northern California town left in ruins after massive McKinney Fire damages area

Ashley R. Williams Chris Pietsch

Residents of Klamath River, a small Northern California town, are reeling from the devastating McKinney Fire that has nearly wiped out their community.

The Klamath River community hall was known to community members as a one-stop shop for weddings, Christmas pageants, fundraisers and funerals, Klamath River Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Janet Jones told the Register-Guard of Oregon, part of the USA TODAY Network.

The fire department also trained there, Jones said.

There’s no sign of the building’s red walls or the American flag painted on its roof, video from the Register-Guard shows. The home of bingo nights and Taco Tuesdays had burned to the ground. The community center’s sign, seemingly unscathed by the fire, was all that remained.
The out-of-control McKinney Fire — California’s largest of 2022 — grew to nearly 90 square miles as of Wednesday morning. The fire first ignited southwest of Klamath River in the Klamath National Forest on Friday.

UTAH WILDFIRE: Started by man who said he was trying to burn a spider, officials say

LAST YEAR'S NUMBERS OUTPACED: Thirteenth child of 2022 dies in hot car

Four people have died, according to the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office. Thousands of people have evacuated. It's not clear what caused the fire, but the Klamath National Forest division of the U.S. Forest Service said on Facebook earlier in the week it was "clear" it was not sparked by lightning.

Roger Derry, 80, and his son have lived together in the tiny scenic hamlet of Klamath River for more than 40 years. They know most of the town's 200 or so residents.

They're one of the few families left after the McKinney Fire raged through the riverside town’s modest homes and stores.

A man runs to a truck as the McKinney fire burns in Klamath National Forest, Calif., on Saturday, July 30, 2022.

“It’s very sad. It’s very disheartening,” Derry said. “Some of our oldest homes, 100-year-old homes, are gone. It’s a small community. Good people, good folks, for the most part, live here and in time will rebuild. But it’s going to take some time now.”

Jones told the Register-Guard that somewhere between 50 to 100 homes were destroyed in the McKinney Fire.

Smoke and ash from the fire has elevated the Air Quality Index near Klamath River to unhealthy levels, according to AirNow.

Cloudy, cool weather mitigated fire activity Tuesday night, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Smaller wildfires that sparked after the McKinney Fire continue to burn in Siskiyou County. The 31-acre Shackleford Fire that erupted Saturday is 31% contained as of Wednesday, Cal Fire reported.
Firefighters have contained 41% of the nearby Meamber Fire, which has scorched 63 acres since starting Sunday.

The Yeti and Alex Fires burning west of the McKinney Fire are both 0% contained over a combined 4.9 square miles, according to InciWeb. Warmer, drier conditions could stoke the Yeti Fire’s flames Wednesday, authorities said.

Explosions at munitions site trigger fire at Berlin's Grunewald forest

Several explosions at an ammunition dump caused a large fire in one of Berlin's largest city forests on Thursday morning.

Around 100 firefighters were on site to control the blaze in the Grunewald forest in the west of the city, German news agency dpa reported.

The fire has so far affected some 15,000 square metres of the forest, the city firefighting unit said, while a one-kilometre perimeter has been set up as the situation remains high-risk.

The fire was spreading quickly, and massive explosions could be heard from the site where old ammunition from World War II, fireworks and explosive ordnance are stored, and controlled explosions are carried out.

"The situation is dangerous," Thomas Kirstein from the Berlin fire department told reporters. He called on residents to stay away from the forest.

Due to flying debris and the threat of further explosions, the fire department said it had not yet begun to systematically extinguish the fire.

Berlin authorities called for additional task forces to help extinguish the flames, including special forces from the German army. Water cannons, helicopters and special evacuation tanks were also due on the scene.

The commuter train service to the city's west was partially interrupted, and one of the city's most important highways, the Avus, was closed.

Homes were not directly threatened by the flames, but the fire department warned that the fire could further spread due to the dry conditions of the forest and the exceptional heat that was expected on Thursday with temperatures of up to 38°C.

The Berlin region is suffering from a particularly severe drought as well.

A large forest fire in July burned more than 850 hectares in southern Brandenburg, the region surrounding the capital. A little further south, a fire in the "Bohemian Switzerland" national park, which started in the Czech Republic and spread to Germany, is still keeping firefighters busy.
