BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Fires ravage southern Bulgaria


SOFIA, Bulgaria— Fires continue to burn across parts of Southern Bulgaria, threatening a number of villages, according to local reports.

Record high temperatures, ranging between 38 C and 43 C, contributed to the fires, which broke out throughout the country last week. The heat wave is forecast to continue this week.

In the regions of Haskovo and Stara Zagora, the fires have affected about 1,200 hectares of forests and damages will exceed 1 million Bulgarian leva (€511,500), the Bulgarian News Agency reported Monday.

Fire also broke out Monday morning in Sofia's Alexandrovska Hospital in an empty ward and was put out about three hours later, the news agency reported.
