    Not only Alaska, these smouldering hazards are getting observed around Siberia too.

    “Siberia has a number of such fires – further south, but now they are present in the far north.

    ====================================================

    ‘This winter peat and charcoal underground fire outside Udarnik was caused by summer wildfires that didn’t stop till late Autumn. It wasn’t diminished by weeks of rain, which is typical for peat fires as they can go many metres down, creating extremely dangerous burning ‘pockets’ where a man or an animal would burn alive within minutes. Peat fires don’t need oxygen from outside, and ‘like’ cold snowy winters because snow acts like a blanket that supports burning’, said ex-forester Lyubov Vasilyeva, from the Tomponsky district of Yakutia.
