LPR alerted to high fire danger from July 15


The Lugansk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry Hydrometeorological Centre has announced Level 4 fire danger in the Republic starting July 15.

“High fire danger, Level 4, is expected in parts of the Republic beginning from July 15,” the Hydrometeorological Center said.

Fire danger is an atmospheric condition characterized by high ambient temperatures, low vapor content, lack of rains and other factors leading to wild fires and grassfires in fields and parks especially due to careless handling of fire.

There are five fire danger levels: very low, low, moderate, high and very high.

The LPR Emergencies Ministry reminded that making fires in forests and steppes was prohibited during the fire hazard period. Leaving bottles or glass fragments in forest and steppe areas is also prohibited as glass can act as magnifying lens to start a fire. *i*s
