Freezing rain has helped put out the remaining woodland fires
Freezing rain has helped put out the remaining woodland fires in the northern part of Russia’s Siberian Irkutsk region, sources from the regional forest protection service told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. Two fires emerged a week ago near two settlements of the Ust-Ilim district, blazing up from small unextinguished bonfires. As it was warm, the fires spread out to a territory of about 20 hectares. It took specialists several days to stop the advance of the fires. A change in the weather helped them. Usually, the season of taiga fires ends in the Irkutsk region in September. This year, however, it was longer, and fires have destroyed 34 hectares of taiga, which is three times as much as last year.
