Huge wildfire spreads southwest of Berlin
Three villages southwest of Berlin have been evacuated as a wildfire the size of 400 soccer fields spread Friday.


More than 500 people had to leave their homes as a result of the fire in Treuenbrietzen, some 50 kilometers (31 miles) outside of Berlin.


"Our main goal is to protect the evacuated villages from the flames," local lawmaker Christian Stein told the German news agency dpa.


"We haven't been able to push back the fire, but none of the buildings have been damaged."
