Evacuations under way as Kras wildfire rages on

Kostanjevica na Krasu, 22 July - Fifteen villages have been evacuated in the Kras region on Friday, as the biggest wildfire ever in Slovenia rages on. The evacuations were launched after the wind changed direction. Units on the ground have strong support from the air, as unexploded ordnance from World War I makes firefighting even harder.
