The area of ​​forest fires has increased in Kamchatka. In the north of the region, seven thermo points are already registered. The fire continues to attack new territories and has already covered 14,4 thousand hectares. Today, a second helicopter, equipped with a spillway device, flew out to extinguish, on its board are 10 employees of KSAU “Protection of Kamchatka Forests”.

Forest fires most likely began due to severe thunderstorms. Two days ago, according to the MOE, they threatened 7 settlements. The fire came very close to Oaklan and Talovka, in the Penzhinsky district, and now all the forces are thrown first and foremost at putting out fires near these villages.

Firefighters have already managed to localize the fire near the village of Kamenskoye, which was also chosen for the reindeer herding farms. However, the situation is complicated by dry and windy weather.
