Firefighters are fighting a major forest fire that broke out on Monday on the slopes of the Baba hill near Preddvor, about 30 kilometres north of Ljubljana.
Army helicopters have been activated and a Croatian water bomber joined the effort. An estimated 600-700 hectares of forest has been affected. A near-by village has been secured, but several firefighters have been injured. A lot of wood in private forests has gone up in smoke along with several holiday facilities.
