LPR Emergencies Ministry extends high fire danger alert till October 31


LUGANSK, October 25 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The Lugansk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry Hydrometeorology Centre announced the highest fire danger level till October 31.

“The highest wildfire hazard will persist in certain areas of the Republic on October 26-31,” meteorologists warned.

Fire hazard is an atmospheric condition characterised by high ambient temperatures, low vapour 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 glass bottles or fragments in forest and steppe areas is also prohibited, as glass can act as a magnifying lens to start a fire. *t
