APA reports quoting the website of the Ministry of Emergency Situations that one helicopter of the Ministry’s Aviation Unit was involved in extinguishing the fire in the forest area in Piran village (35 km away from the region center).

The fire fighting work is underway.

The fire continuing for a few days covered about 2ha area of local forestry.

As the fire-extinguishers were unable to be driven up to the scene, tractors and other heavy equipment as well as employees of local organizations and residents were involved for extinguishing the fire.

Large holes were drilled for preventing the fire from spreading.

Spokesperson for the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources Irada Ibrahimova told APA that the fire broke out in the area of municipality and then moved to the highlands.
