Event details

Spectacular steppe wildfires fueled by strong winds are threatening a growing number of villages in the remote Siberian region with at least 150 people estimated to be left without homes. In Ust-Imalka village, more than half of the 66 residential buildings have been destroyed by the fires. The latest figure was 34 razed in the inferno. The region is covered by thick palls of smoke from the out-of-control wildfires. ‘Firefighters from (regional capital) Chita are heading to the village but it is at least a six-hour drive,’ reported local news website ‘It makes things harder that there is no [mobile] network coverage.’ Around 90 people lost their houses in Unda village in Baleysky district. They have been given temporary accommodation in a local ‘House of Culture’. The wildfires have also been registered around Krasnokamensk and Tockhin villages. There is likely worse to come. ‘Strong wind in TransBaikal region might worsen the situation with wildfires and lead to other negative consequences,’ warned the local Emergencies Ministry. Acting governor Alexander Osipov assigned acting minister of labor and social care Evgeny Kazachenko to assist people whose properties were damaged in the wildfires. According to satellite images, wildfires are burning in South TransBaikal. Residents of Chindant village in Borzinsky district are also publishing videos showing wildfires in the village. TASS reported that a state of emergency had been introduced in the region.
