Drone captures forest scorched by Czech wildfire

STORY: The wildfires in the southern areas of the forest have been completely extinguished, and forces are being moved to the north, the Czech Fire Rescue Service said on Twitter on Saturday (August 6).

The fire broke out on July 24 and has burned over 5,000 acres, according to the latest report.

More than 500 firefighters had been working to extinguish the fires, including forces from Poland, Slovakia, and Italy.

Wildfires raging through Europe this summer have burned the second-largest area on record, even though the region is only halfway through its typical fire season, according to data from the European Union's Joint Research Centre.
