KRASNOYARSK, June 7. /TASS/. The area engulfed by wildfires in Siberia has ebbed by more than 2,000 hectares to 3,700 hectares in the past 24 hours, Russia’s federal aerial forest protection service said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The area of forest fires in Siberia has shrunk by more than 2,000 hectares to 3,700 hectares," the statement reads.
According to the local emergencies agencies, windy weather is complicating firefighting efforts in the the Tuva Region.
Meanwhile, the Khabarovsk Region’s Forestry Department said that ten fires covering 11,400 hectares had been detected in a remote area, which were yet to be tackled.
According to the Irkutsk Region’s government, in the past 24 hours, not a single new fire was recorded. However, two fires covering over 100 hectares of woodland are still active in a remote area of the Katagansky District where a huge fire affecting more than 16,000 hectares had been extinguished earlier.
