Arsonist blamed for series of forest fires

Published fredag 16 juni 2006 kl 13.30

Police in central Sweden are searching for a pyromaniac who has started at least six forest fires over the past few days.

Waterbombs dropped by a helicopter have been used to help put out the fires which are being lit in the area around the town of Sveg.

Meteorologists have been warning this week that there is a high risk of forest fires caused by the dry and hot weather Sweden’s been experiencing. There are between 3 and 4 thousand of them across the country every year.
