ULAN UDE, April 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Damage caused by wildfires to settlements in Russia’s Transbaikal Territory is estimated at more than 100 million roubles, a top official from the territorial government said on Saturday.
According to Alexander Kholmogorov, a deputy chairman of the Transbaikal Territory government, the current task for the government is to provide all those who lost their homes in fires with new housing by the next heating season.
Several villages have been destroyed by steppe and forest fires in the region. Overnight to April 13, a fire in the settlement Bayan-Bulak some 200 kilometers of Chita destroyed 12 houses with an overall area of 770 square meters. A total of 65 people were evacuated.
