MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
At the moment, 30% of the original area of peat bog smoldering has already been watered. Fire fighters continue to shed smoke pockets around the clock with the help of fire nozzles, the Shkval complex, as well as with the use of spilling technology with peat mixing with a trench tool and the use of engineering equipment: bulldozers and excavators.
Thanks to the measures taken, over the past day alone, the area of smoldering has been reduced to 3.8 hectares, and 4 foci of smoldering have been extinguished.
In extinguishing a peat fire, 271 personnel and 104 units of special equipment are involved.
