Firefighters in Transbaikalia extinguished a forest fire on an area of ​​300 hectares in the Tungokochensky region. The fire spread only three kilometers from the village of Suhaytui.

According to the press service of the regional government, this is the first major forest fire in 2021. Now all the materials have been transferred to law enforcement agencies: the Ministry of Natural Resources is planning to find the culprit.

Eighteen people from Zabaikalleskhoz and the forest guard took part in extinguishing the fire. They used three fire engines and one tanker truck.

A special fire safety regime has been introduced in the region since April 2. Owners of land plots adjacent to the forest must clear the land from felling residues and dry grass. Unauthorized burning of dry grass is prohibited.

Last year, the number of forest fires on April 15 was 435, and this year, during the same period, only 25 fires were recorded.
