The Department of Forestry issued a red alert in connection with the danger of fires. The Service calls on the public to be cautious and to avoid any actions that could lead to a fire.
Given the high air temperatures, in its statement, the department stresses that it is strictly prohibited to burn grass or garbage, and the use of machinery must be accompanied by supervision and control. Especially the attention of the department advises to draw attention to the systems of auto-irrigation and external generators, which are used in rural areas. According to the information received, it is their malfunctions that lead to fires in the fields, which quickly spread through dry air and wind.
If you notice a fire or smoke that may indicate a fire, immediately report your observations to 1407 (Forestry Department) or 112.
