A fire swept through a larger area at Mosor between the Mosor′s hut and the mountaineering lodge as informs Dalmacija News. A canadair had to be involved due to the inaccessible terrain.

Members of the DVD Žarnovica were on site, but because of it being so far away and inaccessible, it took them a while to reach the fire. The area affected by the fire is estimated at 15 hectares. The fire was set at minimum 10 places from the hiking path from Zagrađa towards the lodge.

With the fall of night, the canadair had to stop helping on the site and another 12 fire-fighters were left (all from DVD Žarnovica). Although the fire at Mosor was visible from Split area in the evening hours, according to the fire-fighters on site, the situation is under control.

Only at the top of the peak Ljubljan still some open fire, but there is no possibility for it to spread any further. All other areas have been extinguished. Another 5 fire-fighters remained on duty at Mosor for the Monday night.
