According to the fire brigade, the fire is near the Olympic Rowing Centre, in an area with difficult access due to a swamp. At the moment, no residences are threatened, nor is the national park.

High winds are making the operation harder. There were 41 firefighters with 12 vehicles, three pedestrian teams and a helicopter on the mission.
