In 52% of cases of fires in Buryatia, the local population is to blame
At this point in Buryatia more than 190 fires were recorded on an area of about 9000 hectares. The main reasons are the local population - 52%, agricultural burns - 17%. In 24%, the cause of the fire has not been established, according to the press service of the regional government.
Head of the Republic Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn heard at the meeting information about the situation with forest fires from the head of the forestry agency, Alexey Shchepin.
Since the beginning of the year, 135 violations of fire safety rules have been identified. Officially in the republic by the decree "On Emergency Situations" agricultural burns are prohibited. 7 criminal cases were initiated under Article 261 “deliberate arson”. Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn emphasized: "I ask you to complete these cases, to make them public."
Throughout the republic, 86 raids are conducted daily. A large-scale agitational work is carried out to prevent fires.
