More than 450 buildings are on fire: At least ten dead in fires in Siberia – Panorama – Society

At least ten people have died in several fires in southern Siberia. In the Krasnoyarsk region, more than 450 buildings were on fire and at least five people died, the region’s emergency response ministry said on Saturday. In the adjacent Kemerovo Oblast, three bodies were found in a burned house. Two dead and eight injured were reported from the Omsk region.

According to the authorities, a criminal investigation was initiated into the fire in Kemerovo. The fires in Krasnoyarsk, including in a kindergarten and sawmills, are believed to have been caused by unusually strong winds, said the region’s governor, Alexander Uss, after an emergency meeting. The gusts toppled trees and power lines. As a result, “several fires broke out simultaneously in many areas of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.”

The strong winds now also made extinguishing work more difficult and accelerated the spread of the flames, the Krasnoyarsk Ministry of Disaster Management said. According to the authorities, hundreds of firefighters were deployed with dozens of vehicles. It was too windy for the use of fire-fighting aircraft. The local authorities declared a state of emergency for the region.

Wind speeds of 40 meters per second were reached in some areas instead of the predicted 25 meters per second. The strong wind is expected to last “at least four to six hours,” said Governor Uss. The authorities had asked neighboring areas for help. However, this will “in the best case only arrive in a few hours”.

The governor ordered power to be shut off in part of the region. The only exceptions are essential facilities, gas stations and water supply systems. Fierce fires have been raging in Siberia for years. (AFP)
