以毒攻毒 以火撲火 瑞典投彈來撲滅由夏季熱波造成的林火 Sweden drops bombs to extinguish wildfires caused by summer heatwave 27 Jul, 2018
As wildfires spread across the EU due to sweltering hot temperatures, Sweden resorted to an ingenious and equally puzzling way of extinguishing them – by dropping bombs.
The threat of the blaze in central Sweden was compounded by the fact it engulfed a military target-practice area containing undetonated shells. So it was too risky for firefighters to do their job on the ground.
The country’s Armed Forces scrambled two fighter jets at 12pm on Wednesday to drop the bombs from 3,000 meters, in the hope the pressure caused by the explosive devices could help calm the fire.
