The Chief Commander of the State Fire Service, Brigadier Mariusz Feltynowski, said that it was a “very strange situation” that such an area was on fire 11 minutes from the notification to the arrival of the fire brigade. – Perhaps the accumulation of materials, especially clothes, caused the fire to spread very quickly inside – he added.

3. Cold gardeners and cold Zośka 2024. Frosts in Poland

Every year in May, the central regions of Europe experience a climatic phenomenon that may adversely affect plants. Due to the commemorations of Saints Pancrasy, Servatius, Boniface and Sophia falling between May 12 and 15, this period is called “cold gardeners” and “cold Zośka”. Due to the inflow of cold air, frosts occur at this time, which are so undesirable by gardeners, farmers and fruit growers.

On the night from Sunday, May 12 to Monday, May 13, frosts are expected in the east and north-east of the country. Thermometers in some places will show 0 and -1 degrees Celsius. The ground temperature in Masovia will drop to -2 degrees Celsius, and in Podlasie and Warmia and Mazury to -1 degrees Celsius.

It was the first goal against Sweden in 35 years

5. Ekstraklasa hit for Legia

Lech Poznań lost 1-2 to Legia Warszawa in bizarre circumstances in Sunday's Ekstraklasa match. Both goals for Wojskowy were scored by “Kolejorz” players. First, Miha Blazic beat his own goalkeeper, then Bartosz Salamon. Joel Pereira scored an honorary goal for the hosts. After the defeat at home, Lech fell to fifth place in the table. Legia, in turn, advanced to third place. Both teams no longer have a chance to win the Polish championship, just like the defending champion – Raków Częstochowa. The new Polish champion will be Jagiellonia Białystok or Śląsk Wrocław.
