Information of MES’s Press-service

As it was reported, on the night of July 25, 2021, the 112 hotline of the Ministry of Emergency Situations received information about a fire in a mountainous area in Badamdar settlement, Sabail district, Baku, and the units of the MES State Fire Protection Service of the Ministry of Emergency Situations were immediately involved in firefighting.

Thus, according to the information received about the incident at 00:10 AM, the first fire brigade arrived at the scene at 00:20 AM. Despite the windy weather, thanks to the prompt and correct assessment of the operational conditions, rapid response to the fire, coordinated and effective management of the forces involved, the fire was extinguished at 01:10 AM, preventing it from spreading to a larger area and spreading to the houses in the upper and lower parts of the slope.

As a result of the fire, about 10 hectares of dry grass and shrubs, several newly planted trees, plastic water pipes for irrigation systems were closed at 100 p.m. burned.

It should be noted that due to the complexity of the terrain of the landslide zone, it was not possible to apply fire equipment in firefighting measures, so manual labor was used in firefighting.

Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations Lieutenant General Etibar Mirzayev visited the area in connection with the incident.
