Isonzo Front unexploded ordnance still posing significant risk after fire

Kostanjevica na Krasu, 28 July - The wildfire that raged across Kras in the past two weeks proved to be extraordinarily challenging because the area is littered with thousands of explosive devices from World War I, which may detonate when subjected to extreme heat. Over 500 devices have gone off during the fire which has since been extinguished, but the area remains dangerous.
