Cantons restrict outdoor fires during heatwave
Several cantons have brought in strict restrictions on outdoor fires as the country swelters.
The main regions are in the central parts of the country. Yesterday firefighters battled a major fire in a cornfield in Triengen in canton Lucerne.
It’s thought a baling machine triggered the blaze. Local roads were closed as the smoke reduced visibility.
Rain is expected in many areas from tonight and into the weekend.
