"10 people are investigating the location in Tuguri, which was determined to be the center of fire"
Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said at today's session of the Croatian government that it was announced that the cause of the fire in Dalmatia was open flame or ciders, he repeated that he did not accept the resignation of Defense Minister Damir Krsticevic, who did not appear today, but was replaced by State Secretary Tomislav Ivic.
Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic informed the government that the cause of the fire was an open flame or a bonfire, excluding the possibility that the cause of the fire was a transmission line.
"10 people are investigating the location in Tuguri, which was determined to be the center of fire" - said Bozinovic.
Speaking about the consequences and damage from the fire, Bozinovic said that three residential buildings were completely burned down, 33 buildings were demolished, with 13 old and uninhabited houses. In addition to the houses, 18 cars were completely destroyed, four partly as well as four cargo cars, 11 olive groves, and two greenhouses which burned completely.
Krsticevic, however, did not come to the government session, but Tomislav Ivic, state secretary in that ministry was present instead of him. When asked why Minister Krsticevic did not come to the session, Ivic responded briefly: "I have no comment."
Namely, Krsticevic resigned earlier this week during the catastrophic fires that hit Dalmatia. The minister resigned when President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic said that the army could have gone earlier to the field to help firefighters.
At the beginning of the session, Plenkovic reiterated that Minister Krsticevic assigned the army on time to help firefighting. At the beginning of the session, the Prime Minister spoke about the fires that had devastated Dalmatia over the past days.
Director of the State Administration for Protection and Rescue Dragan Lozancic, who also attended the government session, said that there was a problem of vertical communication, towards the government and to the President.
- But we should avoid the thesis that the system has failed, or that everything went well. The truth is always somewhere in the middle and we are closer to the successful one. We saved lives, we saved thousands of houses, the situation changed from hour to hour, the situation got out of control because the Canadairs could not fly, what happened, happened in the vicinity of Split - said Lozancic.
