The April 2021 fire in the Mournes :: J3628

The wildfire of 22/26 of April in the High Mournes was probably the work of arsonists. The seat of the fire was in the Bloody Bridge area and despite the efforts of up to 100 firefighters spread to destroy the vegetation cover on Leganabruchan, Millstone Mountain, Thomas's Mountain, Crossone and Slieve Donard. The lack of water and inaccessibility of the area made the task more difficult. Irish Air Corps helicopters were unavailable this time due to commitments in the Republic's Killarney NP wildfire. The NIFRS personnel had to tackle the fire mainly by beating it out.
