Emergency situations officers of Mogilev region start grassland firefighting

Emergency situations officers of Mogilev region started grassland firefighting. The information is provided by Olga Nekhoroshih, chief inspector of Mogilev regional propaganda and training centre under the Emergency situations office.

Yesterday Bykhov district emergency situations office got the information about the fire in the village of Rabochy. When the brigade arrived two sheds and a roof of a house were burning. The fire was spreading over the dry grass threatening the neighbouring buildings. The fire officers managed to protect the nearby constructions. But the damage was inevitable: the roof of the village house and the roofs of the sheds were seriously damaged. No injuries took place.

The specialists found out that the village house was used as dacha. Its owner lives in Rogachev. The fire was caused by grassland fire. The task is to establish whose guilt was it.

Grassland fires can cause serious damage to constructions and vehicles. According to Olga Nekhoroshih, the fire can even take peoples’ lives. It is strongly recommended to burn litter only in windless weather keeping firefighting devices on alert – a bucket of water, a fire extinguisher and sand. The fire should be in the distance of minimum 10 meters from the constructions, and 30 meters from straw. A grill should be 4 meters away from the house.
