The blaze broke out around 12.15 pm in the wooded area behind the Duino Nord service area and according to local media reports, the fire appears to be much larger and more dangerous than fires that have broken out in recent weeks.
Once again, firefighters and police were dispatched to the scene to tackle the flame and stop traffic on the A4 motorway, respectively.
Twitter user @MumHasHadIt shared four photos of the fire.

The road is currently close in the section between Sistiana and Monfalcone towards Venice. In the opposite direction (Trieste), the traffic is temporarily slowly flowing towards Monfalcone.
Diego Lifonti shared a photo on Twitter showing air rescue arriving from Genoa to start the process of dropping water on the flames.
“The #canadair arrived from Genoa goes to the first launch of water,” he wrote.
