In the Chukotka Autonomous Region, almost 14 hectares of forest are burning. Rescuers do not exclude that when the wind changes, it is possible to smoke in populated areas.

According to the press service of the local Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, 11 wildfires operate in Chukotka. However, there is no threat to human settlements - the remote, inaccessible territory is on fire.

Wildfires originated in the region due to heat, thunderstorms and low precipitation. The situation is complicated by windy weather.
