Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SRFS) have issued a wildfire warning for Scotland effective until Friday, May 17. High temperatures, strong winds, and recent dry weather are creating conditions favorable to the start and spread of wildfires in the region. Four crews of firefighters worked to combat a blaze near Thurso on Sunday evening (local time), May 12, and Monday, May 13. Further fires are possible in the coming days and weeks.
Individuals in Scotland are advised to monitor local weather and fire reports and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities (e.g. evacuations).
