GORNO-ALTAISK, August 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The emergency regime, which the Yakutia leader decreed over a great number of forest fires, was lifted in 18 rural districts in the Russian Republic of Yakutia and the city of Yakutsk. No wildfires were reported in the republic on Monday, the press service of the republican emergency department told Itar-Tass.
Despite the emergency regime was lifted, the Yakutia emergency department recommended the local residents to observe the basic fire safety rules in the forests.
About 500 wildfires on a total area of about 760,000 hectares were reported in Yakutia from the start of the fire-prone season this year.
