Several firefighter units were trying to extinguish a blaze that broke out at a waste sorting facility in Kutná Hora, just 50 kilometers out of Prague. The fire has already spread to a nearby field. A third degree fire-alert is in place, a spokesman for the fire service Jaroslav Gabriel told the Czech News Agency. Several firefighters, who are trying to prevent the blaze from spreading to a nearby hall, have collapsed as a result of the intense heat.
