On his own property on a slope in the selzach valley in wallenfels, an elderly man burned old lumber thursday afternoon. As a breeze moved through the valley from time to time, the fire got out of control and covered a flat of about 100 square meters.
The rapid intervention of the wallenfels volunteer fire department prevented the fire from spreading to the high forest and the other slope overgrown with brush. Since the site was not easy to reach with the tanker trucks, the firefighters laid pipes from the surface hydrant in order to have enough firewater available.
To the hospital for treatment
With the warm-image camera was searched for possible fire nests and the flat roughly irrigated. The volunteer fire department of steinwiesen was also called in, but did not have to intervene and only remained on site for some time as a reserve. The "champion of the chutes was taken by the RTW steinwiesen to the frankenwaldklinik in kronach for observation.
