While wildfires in Siberia usually happen every year, the recent wildfires have been shocking as they now consume a major portion of the forest day by day. The fires have increased so much that the Russian Government was forced to introduce a state of emergency.
Forest blazes are one of the most frequent environmental tragedies that the earth has been recently facing. However, it is said that the Siberian Forest blazes are bigger than all of the wildfires currently happening around the world. The Yakutia region, which is usually one of the coldest regions on earth, saw very high temperatures this winter.
