In the commune of Chmielnik (Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship), about 15 hectares of wasteland burned down. The man arrested in connection with the fire told the police that he was trying to put out the fire. He was charged with arson.

The fire broke out on Friday afternoon in Bożekowa in the Chmielnik commune. Plumes of smoke rising over the agricultural wasteland were noticed by police officers patrolling the area.

– When the officers drove near the fire, they noticed a man fanning the flames with a branch with leaves. When the man saw the police approaching him, he immediately ran away. After a short chase, he was arrested. The 65-year-old explained his behavior around the source of the fire with the desire to put it out, even though it looked like a completely opposite action – said Mł.asp. Małgorzata Perkowska-Kiepas from the Municipal Police Headquarters in Kielce.
