Crimean firefighters did not allow the spread of fire during a fire in an open area.
The day before (at 30 hours), the Ministry of Emergency Situations received a message about the fire of dry vegetation near the village of Olenevka, Chernomorsky district. Upon the arrival of firefighters, it became known that dry vegetation was burning in an open area outside the settlement. There is a threat of further spread of fire to nearby buildings.
Firefighters laid hose lines, and also used firecrackers and Ermak spray packs. The liquidation was complicated by a strong gusty wind, which changed its direction and contributed to the rapid spread of fire. As a result, within 30 minutes, the fire was localized and eliminated. Thanks to the prompt and well-coordinated work of firefighters, it was possible to prevent the further spread of fire. The area of the fire was 300 square meters. There were no casualties. The reasons are established by experts , — reported the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Crimea.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations draws the attention of residents and guests of the peninsula to the fact that the main cause of landscape fires is still burning grass and careless handling of fire by citizens and neglect of fire safety rules. It is the burning of grass that causes most of the forest fires. In addition, people themselves suffer from their own carelessness. Dry grass quickly flares up, it is difficult to control this process, therefore, often before the eyes of the owners, the fire spreads to outbuildings, and sometimes the houses themselves catch fire.
