Over a hundred fire departments and some  five hundred firefighters fought with the blazes , which spread  through the mostly wooden buildings. Taking part in the action were also local police teams and the Territorial Defence Forces. The raging fire, which was finally conquered in late night hours, destroyed over 20 residential and 23 farm buildings.

Poland’ s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has called a special crisis team to help the families which had suffered in the fire. Morawiecki wrote on Twitter that none of the families would be left without a roof over their heads , adding that the government help will also embrace the rebuilding of the residential and farm houses destroyed.

It is not the first time that the village of Nowa Biała  has been ravaged by a fire. It is densly built up, comprising mostly wooden buildings, characteristic of the region, which is conducive to a rapid spreading of flames.

An investigation into the causes of the fire has been launched by the local prosecution in Nowy Targ.
