It would be interesting to learn who the arsonists were that set the fires. There is no way that all these fires were lit off by lightning or spontaneous combustion. Has Russia found even one careless smoker or arsonist? Perhaps everyone was too busy fighting the huge fires to look for the arsonists.
Glad to see the fires die down. Hope all the displaced people will have shelter this winter.
