During the May holidays, 25 natural fires were detected in Primorsky Krai. All of them are extinguished. On the morning of May 5, no fires were registered, the regional ministry for civil defense and emergency situations reported.

- The rains that took place on the territory of Primorye in early May improved the fire hazard situation in the region. Over the past day, only two fires with a total area of 65 hectares were registered, in the Khanka district and the Khasan district. They have been eliminated, the department said.

The regional government noted that last holiday weekend - from April 30 to May 3 - 18 forest plots burned in Primorye, and seven natural fires with a total area of over 690 hectares were registered.

A high fire hazard class was established due to dry, warm weather. At the end of last month, a special fire regime was introduced in the region.

In total, 697 forest and natural fires on an area of about 72,000 hectares were extinguished in the region this year.
