Another «natural» fire in the Crimea — and again «man-made»
With the establishment of dry and windy weather in the Crimea, the number of «natural» fires increased. For the most part, this is the burning of dry vegetation in open areas. To stop a well-flamed fire, experts say, can be very difficult. The cause of such incidents, almost always, is the careless handling of fire by people. With such fires, the fire can quickly spread to residential buildings, damage infrastructure, so citizens should pay special attention to fire safety.
Yesterday at 16:02 the Ministry of Emergency Situations received a message about the fire of dry vegetation near the village of Ilyichevo (Sovetsky district). Upon the arrival of firefighters, it became known that dry grass and shrubs were burning in an open area outside the village.
The firefighters promptly laid hose lines, and with the use of firecrackers and Yermak backpacks, they began to extinguish the fire. According to the fire brigade, the extinguishing was complicated by strong gusty winds, which changed its direction and contributed to the spread of fire. Within an hour and a half, the fire was localized and eliminated. The area was 150 sq. meters. There were no casualties. Experts find out why— reported in the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Crimea.
Also, over the past day, employees of the fire departments of the villages of Dobroe, Privetnoe and Sadovoe were involved in the elimination of fires in dry vegetation.
