WILDFires nears Chernobyl: Minister Warns of Radiation Risk
- Hundreds more wildfires ignite/burn in Russia
8-8-2010 (CNN) -- About 270 new wildfires have started in drought-plagued Russia over the past 24 hours, state media reported Sunday, citing the country's emergencies ministry.
"As many as 276 wildfires have been extinguished," the ministry told RIA-Novosti. "Currently, 554 wildfires are raging on an area of over 190,000 hectares."
The setback comes as Moscow chokes in intense smog, with toxic substances at levels several times greater than the norm. State media reports the combination of forest fires and pollutants contributed to the smog.
