PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, June 5 (Itar-Tass) —— A special fire regime has been imposed in two districts of Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka Territory over high wildfire hazards, a local government official said on Tuesday.
“The highest, fifth, fire hazard threat is still in place in the Milkovsky and Yelizovsky districts and in the western areas of the Ust-Kamchatsky district,” the official website of the Kamchatka government cited local minister of special programs Sergei Khabarov. Since the beginning of this year’s wildfire season, as many as 13 forest fires have been registered in Kamchatka, whereas there were 12 wildfires by this date in 2011. In all, fire destroyed 405.5 hectares, which is less than last year.
“Over the high forest fire hazards, people are recommended not to go to forests. Forest rangers have been put on alert. People are also banned to make bonfires in forests and in settlements,” the government stressed.
Currently, there are four forest fires in Kamchatka: two on areas of 65 and 34 hectares in the Yelizovsky district, and two (12 and 20 hectares) in the Milkovsky district. Three of them have been contained, and there is one active fire on an area of 65 hectares in the vicinity of the settlement of Severnye Koryaki.
