In the Nizhnekolymsky and Abyisky districts of Yakutia, an emergency mode was introduced due to ongoing forest fires. The fire approached the Chukotenergo transmission line just eight km from the village of Chersky.

According to the press service of the government of the republic, most of the thermal points are registered today in the northern and arctic regions of the republic, where there is an abnormal heat. In addition, 11 forest fires with an area of ​​558 hectares are extinguished in the protected area of ​​the forest fund. 

In addition to the Abyisky and Nizhnekolymsky districts, it is recommended to introduce an emergency mode in the Vilyui, Verkhnevilyuysky, Eveno-Bytantaysky and Verkhnekolymsky districts. If a special regime extends to several regions of the republic, it will be possible to announce emergencies of regional significance. This will attract additional forces to extinguish fires. 

Now in the territory of the Abyisky ulus there are only 11 thermal points without threat to human settlements. First Deputy Prime Minister of Yakutia Alexei Kolodeznikov instructed to send additional forces and means to extinguish fires in the region.
