An area of around nine hectares was affected, the fire brigade reported. The extinguishing work was made more difficult by the wind, which partially spread and rekindled the flames. A total of around 200 fire brigade members were on duty for several hours.
The fire broke out around 3 p.m. for reasons unknown. Due to the difficult conditions, the flight service and the special forest firefighting service were also requested. The extinguishing work continued on Saturday evening.
