The dry and hot weather is basically continuing throughout the entire country. The risk of fire will be reaching extreme levels this week. Four critical forest fires are in progress, and there is a very high risk of more, especially in the southern part of the country and in the Mälardal region. At this moment, forest fires must be fought early. A small spark can quickly spread and have serious consequences.

The situation is extremely serious. MSB urges everyone to take responsibility and follow local fire bans. If you cause a fire, you can be held liable.
