In the town of Kruglovo, located on the shores of the Baltic Sea west of Königsberg, a huge landfill fire broke out. The fetid smoke reached as far as the Tri-City.

The Russian Ministry of Civil Defense, Emergency Situations and Liquidation of the Consequences of Natural Disasters informed about the landfill fire. The Russians assured that firefighters “do not leave their post day or night” – they put out the fire during the day and control the situation after dark.

According to the Russian news agency TASS, the fire broke out on June 12. According to local authorities, the cause of the fire was “extremely dry weather”, and Dmitry Lyskov, the head of the press service, reportedly said that the event was of a natural nature.

The independent Belarusian news website Nexta reported on Tuesday that the fire had taken up about 5,000 square meters. So far, according to information provided by the Russian ministry, the area occupied by fire has been reduced to 1,000 square meters.
