This year, about 290 cases of dry vegetation burning have been recorded in 15 districts of the Odessa region. This became known during a conference call at the Odessa Regional State Administration. By Skype, the chairmen of district state administrations and heads of the OTG of the region joined the meeting.

"Last year, losses due to fires in grain crops fields in various regions of the Odessa region amounted to more than one and a half million hryvnia. Currently, there is a lack of social firefight advertising in the region. On this issue, I once again draw the attention of the representatives of the State Emergency Services Department. People need to be reminded of the rules of fire safety. Also, the heads of the RSA and OTG should additionally arrange the explanatory work among local residents and agricultural entrepreneurs ", - said the first deputy chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Oleksandr Tereshchuk.

It should be noted, according to the DNS, on June 8 in the Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi district grass was burning on an area of about 4 hectares, and on June 17 there was a fire in the Razdlinsky district, which resulted in the burning of 30 tons of hay.

Recall that farms in the Odessa region have already begun harvesting early cereals and legumes. This year their total area is over 1 million hectares.
