Kosta receives remuneration after the fire
The forest fire that ravaged outside Kosta in July cost the rescue service about 420,000 Swedish crowns. In November, Lessebo municipality applied to the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency in the hope of receiving financial compensation. Now Smålandsposten writes that the municipality will receive the sum they applied for.
Lessebo municipality will be responsible for the deductible of 278 300 Swedish crowns. The rest, 141 912 Swedish crowns, is obtained from the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency.
However, the money does not go to Lessebo municipality but to the Rescue Services in East Kronoberg.
