In all areas of the Siberian Federal district declared a state of emergency because of the fires. This was stated by the head EMERCOM of Russia Vladimir Puchkov, reports the Russian service Bi-bi-si.
As reported in the Irkutsk region is now the most difficult situation – almost entirely burned down a village of 86 houses.
The cause of the fire becomes, presumably, the locals burning grass and dead wood. At the same time in Irkutsk and Krasnoyarsk regions, the air temperature reaches 26 degrees Celsius, which combined with strong winds leads to uncontrolled spread of fire.
Of the victims in the fires are not reported.
