On Friday evening, we were sent to a fire that broke out in the production hall of a farm building in Nová Ves near Zámrsk. Together with our unit, an HZS unit from the Vysoké Mýto station was sent to the site, as well as voluntary units from Zámrsk and Chocna. Immediately after the arrival of the first unit, it was necessary to disconnect the electricity.Only then was it possible to start extinguishing the fire. A loader was burning inside the building, from which the fire spread further, for example, to a wooden cell that served as an office. The fire was not brought under control until after twenty-one o’clock and was completely extinguished only a few hours after the incident was reported to the fire brigade’s operations and information center.
A firefighters’ investigator arrived at the scene, who preliminarily quantified the damage caused by the flames at 250,000 crowns. Assets in the amount of 5 million crowns were saved. The cause of the fire is now being investigated. A unit of volunteer firefighters from Zámrsk remained in sight until the morning hours.
