A large forest fire in the Amur region extinguished paratroopers paratroopers of the Federal Avialesookhran. To stop the spread of fire in the Tyndinsk area, they carried out blasting.

The cause of a natural fire was a thunderstorm. At the same time, the center was located in an inaccessible area — in a mountainous area with a height of slopes of more than one km, with stony placers and tree thickets. The situation was complicated by the wind, which changed strength and direction several times a day.

According to the press service of Avialesookhran, paratroopers laid mineralized strips and allowed controlled annealing using a high-power detonating cord. Since Tyndinsky district is equated to the territory of the Far North, sometimes the depth of mineralized zones reached the permafrost layer.

The fire was stopped seven days after its appearance. He passed the area 1 520 ha. Now the final extinguishing of the fire continues, which has gone under the roots of trees, moss hummocks and under rocky placers.
