“During the period of June 19 – June 22 the highest fire danger will persist in certain areas of the Republic,” meteorologists warned.

Fire hazard is a an atmospheric condition characterized by high ambient temperatures, low vapor 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.
