- All Forest Fires Put Out in Russia’s Siberia
Firefighters and rescuers extinguished all wildfires that swept across Russia’s Siberia this summer covering an area of nearly 200 hectares, the regional forestry department said in a statement on Monday.
“All forest fires were terminated on the territory of the Siberian federal district. There is no threat to residential areas and economic facilities in the district,” the statement said.
NASA quoted Greenpeace in July as saying that this year's wildfires in Russia were worse than in 2010, when they engulfed most of central Russia, chocking the populous region with acrid smog.
Also in July, smoke from wildfires in the taiga east of the Urals accounted for some spectacular sunsets in western Canada and the United States.
