KIEV, July 16 /TASS/. Ukrainian rescuers have extinguished an 18-day-long peat fire in the Chernobyl nuclear power plant’s exclusion zone.
"The last flame seat in the territory of the exclusion zone was liquidated in the village of Kovshilovka," Ukraine’s State Service for Emergency Situations said on Thursday.
The fire in the exclusion zone broke out in the territory of the Chernobylskaya Pushcha forestry on June 29 and spread to about 130 hectares in separate flame seats.
According to Ukraine’s Service for Emergency Situations, the radiation background in the exclusion zone around the Chernobyl NPP remains normal and is not dangerous for the firefighters.
