In this live shot you can see smoke in the distance.

Wildfires are burning across Germany.

One such fire is just southwest of Berlin. That fire has grown rapidly.

There is an unusual complication with this wildfire, it is riddled with buried World War II ammunition.

Heat from the wildfire has been setting off some of the ammunition.

Smoke from the wildfire have prompted the evacuations of nearby towns. Smoke has also made it to Berlin.
