The 4th Class of Fire Danger

Posted on May 20, 2012 by team

A serious fire-hazardous situation occured in the south of the Almaty region. Lack of precipitations and strong wind caused in the 4th, last but one, danger class. Let’s fly over the region and see how they try to solve the problem.

In spring the delta of the Ili river is very beautiful. The region has a unique microclimate and such plants that cannot be found anywhere else in Kazakhstan.

It’s a paradise for any animals!

For air fireground recon private planes and helicopters are rented. This is Bell-206, the miniature and very maneuverable helicopter which is important for finding hot spots.

The 4th class of danger presupposes double patrolling of the territory.

Fire in the steppe

Suddenly a minibus appears..

The helicopter blocks the way to incendiaries. The minibus stops.

Meanwhile, the tamarisk and saxaul are burning…

When they were asked why they had set the steppe on fire they explained they had wanted to get rid of wolves that stole their sheep… What an original way to fight wolves!
