Europe is having a bad month…
A wildfire is consuming Slovenia and as the blaze moves across areas that were once battlefields during World War I, it’s meeting century-old unexploded ordnance with deadly results.

Most European countries have ‘specialists’ that deal with UXO, which tend to show up routinely when farmers in Europe plow their land in the spring, or when construction crews find UXO when they go to build a building or something else.
This is just one more issue and a real danger to the firefighters, in addition to heatstroke, the fire, and now UXO blowing up in their faces.
Kudos to them for continuing to get out there and fight the wildfires as successfully as they do! Those folks clank when they walk!!!
