“The fire occurred as a result of a wild pigeon hitting the power lines, which led to a short-circuit of the lines and sparks, and then a fire” – volunteer firefighters from Wola Zaradzyńska reported on social media. Rescuers appreciated the attitude of the witnesses who started the firefighting operation. “Our tasks were only to pour over the ashes and after less than half an hour we return to the base” – they said.

As firefighters told us, the bird did not survive.
