Typhoon Bolaven helps douse wildfires

Typhoon Bolaven has helped firefighters to put out wildfires in the Khabarovsk Region, the local administration says.

A total of 11 wildfires were raging in the region’s northeastern areas when the cyclone struck.

The ensuing heavy rain enabled fire-fighting brigades to extinguish six wildfires and contain the remaining five within 24 hours.

The last pockets of fire were doused on Friday morning.
