LUGANSK, August 30 (Lugansk Media Centre) –The Lugansk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry Hydrometeorology Centre announced the highest fire danger level in the LPR from August 31.

“Starting from August 31, the highest fire danger will persist in certain areas of the Republic,” meteorologists warned.

Fire hazard is a 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 magnifying lens to start a fire.
