The Lugansk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry Hydrometeorological Centre has announced Level 5 fire danger in the Republic starting July 19.
“The highest fire danger, Level 5, is announced in parts of the Republic beginning July 19,” the Hydrometeorological Center said.
Fire danger is an atmospheric condition characterized by high ambient temperatures, low vapour content, lack of rains and other factors leading to wildfires and grass fires 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 a magnifying lens to start a fire. *t
