  • A fire broke out in Berlin’s Grunewald forest early on Thursday following an explosion at a munitions storage site.
  • Homes were not directly threatened by the fire, although the officials warned that dry conditions and the exceptional heat expected on Thursday meant that the blaze could spread.
  • A stretch of Autobahn highway between Spanischer Allee and Hüttenweg was also closed in both directions, as were two smaller streets.
