GEORGIA – A helicopter and about 200 firefighters are involved to extinguish a fire in the village of Ormotsi, Ateni Gorge, in central Georgia.

Fires were reported in the gorge late yesterday with firefighters working to extinguish the fire whole night.

“Special equipment and a helicopter are being used to put out the fire. The number of firefighters will increase to 200 today,” the Emergency Management Service has reported.

Ten active fires were reported throughout Georgia yesterday, mostly on the lower layers of forests.

The Agency has called upon shepherds and hunters to exercise maximum caution to prevent fires, as “due to warm weather, the lower layers of woods are dry and easily catch fire.”
