Due to the inaccessibility of the region by vehicles, the firemen from TPPE Gostivar were unable to intervene. They were only able to intervene with five employees from the Mavrovo National Park. In the morning, the teams from the national park are planned to intervene in the same difficult-to-access terrain,” the CMC informed.
