The fire spread over an estimated 3,300 hectares of land, consuming grass, underbrush, woods, and agricultural crops.

Commenting on the fire at a press conference in Šibenik, Interior Minister Davor Božinović said that 30 houses, several cars and boats, and three agricultural machines had burnt down in the conflagration.

“The damage is being assessed. We need to be aware that the climate in Europe and the world is changing and that climate change is happening faster than expected. Every year, temperatures are higher and drought periods are longer,” Božinović said.

He said that state-of-the-art vehicles have been purchased through EU funds and handed over to the fire service for deployment in the field.
