Karst, new fire in Duino: railway traffic stopped, motorway junction closed – Video

A new firelarge, flared up in the late morning today, in the area of Duinoon Karst, in the area where other and much larger and more dangerous fires had broken out in recent days. Meanwhile, as a precaution, from about 12.30 railway traffic is interrupted in the stretch Monfalcone-Trieste and the motorway junction in both directions, always in the Monfalcone area. The firefighters who are working in an attempt to put out the flames have already rushed to the place, not far from the A4 motorway. Today is a black dot day and there is a crowd of tourists at the Lisert motorway barrier. Witnesses on the spot reported seeing flames several meters high. The technicians are checking the situation to prevent the fire from reaching the highway. As for rail traffic, the line starts at 12.35 Venice-Trieste And Trieste-Udine it is suspended in the section between Monfalcone and Bivio d’Aurisina. The staff of the last trains that passed through the area reported flames adjacent to the railway site. RFI has made it known that a replacement bus service has been activated.

The fire broke out shortly after 12.15 in the wooded area behind the Duino Nord service area. Autovie Venete, the concessionaire for the A4 motorway, among other things, alerted the firefighters and traffic police who immediately rushed to the scene. The Autovie staff made the parked vehicles flow out of the area and denied entry. Given the progress of the fire on the sides of the motorway and the poor visibility caused by the smoke, Autovie – to ensure the safety of road users – proceeded to close the section between Sistiana and Monfalcone towards Venice. In the opposite direction (Trieste) the traffic is temporarily made to flow towards Monfalcone.
A positive element in the story is given by the weather forecast: rains are expected from the afternoon.
