Snow extinguished a major fire in Magadan tundra

In the North-Evenk region of the Magadan region, a snow cyclone extinguished a large natural fire covering more than 1000 hectares, сообщает RIA Novosti with reference to the representative of the EMERCOM of Russia in the Magadan region.

The fire lasted more than a week. According to rescuers, a fire did not threaten the settlements, although the smoke from the burning tundra reached the village of Gizhiga. The situation was complicated by the inability to send helicopters to extinguish - the fire would not have enough fuel to return to the airfield. The pedestrian calculation of firefighters worked at the site, who monitored the safety of the surrounding settlements.
