Three forest fires have been registered in the Republic for the first five days of August. Two fires have occurred in Zilairsky region. The area of fire made up 4,5 hectares. One more fire has been registered in Davlekanovsky region and here two hectares were enveloped with fire. Two fires have occurred because of the dry thunderstorms and one-because of the casual handling with fire.

“No fires have been registered on the territory of the forest fund RB for the last 24 hours. Thanks to the system of distant monitoring and with the help of satellite technologies on the base of GLONASS we manage to liquidate practically all fire sources in time” – the press-secretary of the Ministry of forestry RB Aibulat Gainullin reported to the news agency “Bashinform”.
