CHITA, April 19 /TASS/. A Russian Emergencies Ministry convoy has delivered 37 tonnes food and essentials to Chita, Russia’s fire stricken Trans-Baikal region. Social welfare agencies will start distributing the relief aid among the fire-stricken population of the Trans-Baikal territory, the press service of the regional Emergencies Ministry department said.
"The aid convoy for the people who lost their homes in the fire was formed last Saturday. Thirty-seven tonnes of cargoes, including grits, sugar, canned fish and meat, tea, etc were taken from the reserve stocks. The rescuers unloaded more than 3,000 tonnes of boxes and sacks in two hours," the Emergencies Ministry said.
More than 800 people have suffered from fires in the Trans-Baikal territory. They started receiving compensations from the regional budget on Aril 16. The people evacuated from the flood areas have already left temporary accommodation centers. They are staying at their relatives or have returned to the hospitals and children’s homes from where they were evacuated.
Forest fires have been raging in the Trans-Baikal region since March 19. Due to gusty winds, the forest and steppe fires spread to houses and cottage houses in several districts. The fire destroyed houses and country-houses in 18 populated localities in 12 districts.
