A fire that has been raging at a storehouse for tyres has covered the town of Uhersky Brod with a black cloud of smoke. The fire broke out on Thursday afternoon. With dozens of thousands of tonnes of rubber burning, it is the biggest fire that the South Moravian region has experienced in the last ten years. Due to an insufficient number of fire fighters, the fire is being put out with earth.
