Firefighters battle wildfire on Croatian island after man dies



Croatian air-bomber and water-bomber planes joined hundreds of firefighters to contain a wildfire on Sunday that claimed the life of one man on Hvar island in Croatia, Croatian media reported.

The fire threatened residential areas near Stari Grad when it broke out in the early afternoon. According to state news agency Hina, the man died trying to control the flames from his home.

Chief of the fire brigade Ivan Kovacevic stated that the fire was not threatening houses and continued to burn in a pine wood. He told Hina that the situation at the site was currently good.

As Europe’s heatwave continues, wildfires have been raging along Croatia’s Adriatic Coast for the past month.
