Firefighters contingents work to abate wildfires outbreaks in Russia

Moscow, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) More than 440 firefighters and forestry agents are fighting 10 fires in the forests of the Buratia region in southern Russia, the Ministry of Emergencies reported today.

This Monday the agency reported that the forces deployed are fighting to extinguish the fire on a total area of 34,000 hectares, many of which are located in places that are difficult to access.

In the last day, according to the note, outbreaks were detected in three areas as a result of thunderstorms.

The most complicated situation is in the district of Muiski, where 29,550 hectares are burning.

On April 8, Buratia declared a forest fire alert, and since May 26, it has been forbidden to go into the forests.

Last year, recalled the Emergencies Ministry, there were dozens of such fires in Buratia, which devastated an area similar to that of France.
