Fighting Seven Fires in Taiga of the Far East

For the last day and night firefighters tried to suppress eight forest fires in the territory of the Far East.

They managed to extinguish one and localize three of them. Over day and night the fire overtook the area of 18 hectares.

Suppression of seven fires is proceeding, all of them blazing in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). Three of them have caught lands of specially protected natural reservations.

260 people, two land equipment units, and 11 aircrafts, including six helicopters are engaged in the fire fighting there.

Altogether 1043 forest fires on the area of over 258.6 thousand hectares have been registered in the Far East federal district since the beginning of the fire-dangerous period this year. 2065 forest fires on the area of 1.4 million hectares were registered there over the same period in 2014.
