Burning Ban Due to a Dry Season
Denmark has experienced the hottest May in 130 years, which makes last month insanely exceptional. Even though the population has generally enjoyed the great weather and the many sunny days, the heat has influenced other aspects of the Danish population. It has been highly challenging for farmers that are not raising croops, which are not equiped to deal with such a dry period and the high chance of fire occurances in nature has put the municipalities into a state of constant monitoring of their areas.
A fire ban has been issued in 61 municipalities on the 5th of June and it is valid unitl further notice. The ban also applies to individuals, restricting the population from making an open fire in nature or camping facilities, smoking of cigarets in nature, burning of garden debris and using weed burners. If you would like to make a barbecue in your private yeard, the rule is to make sure the grill is on non-burning surfaces such as stone or tiles.
