Fire erupts at bomb disposal site in Berlin forest
Some 15,000 square metres of forested area was on fire in western Berlin after a fire broke out at a bomb disposal site during a heat wave.
The Berlin fire service reported a number of explosions at the site in Grunewald forest, adding in a tweet that officials had sealed off a zone with a 1,000-metre radius.
The blaze and resulting explosions had also prompted authorities to restrict road and rail transport in the area.
The city of Berlin is facing a weather warning currently, with the German weather service DWD forecasting temperatures on Thursday of between 34 and 38 degrees Celsius.
