Large forest fire occurred in the Donets Ridge Landscape and Recreational Park located in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast. This is said in the report of the so-called "Ministry of Emergency Situations of the DNR".
Fire brigades from six cities of CADO were deployed to the seat of fire.
"The fire covered deciduous forest, which belongs to the Donets Ridge Landscape and Recreational Park - a specially protected natural area. Suppression of the fire is complicated by weather conditions - a gusty wind of 15-20 m/s. The fire has been assigned increased call number - No.3", - the message of the fake "ministry" says.
The Donets Ridge Landscape and Recreational Park was created in 2000. In 2015, the occupiers announced that they would control it. The park includes 814 plants, including 33 Red Book plants. The fauna includes 255 species of vertebrates, of which 35 are listed in the Red Data Book.
