In the Penzhinsky district of the Kamchatka Territory, about 11 thousand hectares of forest-tundra are burning, and the fire area has doubled over the past day. The flame moves towards the three settlements in the north of the peninsula, сообщает press service of the regional government.

Employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, forest guards and volunteers have already begun to extinguish fires. “Quenching is carried out with the use of a helicopter with a spillway device, the ground group works on the edge of fires. Aerial reconnaissance of fires operating in the area of ​​the villages of Kamenskoye, Talovka and Oklan was carried out. It has been established that some of them are self-liquidating in the long term, having rested against natural mountain and water barriers, ”said Sergey Khabarov, deputy chairman of the regional government.

The authorities also note that the fire situation is complicated by the warm and windy weather that has settled on Kamchatka in recent days, which contributes to the spread of fire across the tundra and the forest tundra.
