A forest fire crept up to the very border of the city of Yakutsk. About two thousand hectares of forest burned down on the territory of the urban district. According to the mayor of the city Yevgeny Grigoriev on Instagram, the fire was extinguished in nine days on an area of ​​over two thousand hectares.

Every day the size of the group changed depending on the situation and at peak loads reached 90 people. With difficulty, but we managed to deliver equipment there, including heavy equipment, beyond 60 kilometers of off-road, '' he wrote.

According to the mayor, the authorities brought in three tractors, two water trucks, one loader and three bulldozers to put out the fire. Rescuers also used trawls, buses and SUVs.

Yakutia is one of the most flammable regions of the Russian Federation. There, from July 1, a ban was introduced on visiting forests and a state of emergency was declared due to the fact that fire often spreads from forests to residential areas and economic facilities.

Previously, smog from forest fires in Yakutia covered a number of districts of the Pavlodar region in Kazakhstan.
