Burning dry vegetation in Dolj


Spring has come and stubble has already started to burn. In the last three days alone, more than 350 ha of hedgerows and dry vegetation burned within the radius of Bulzești, Tălpași, Murgași and Velești towns, the flames also spread to two outbuildings.

Such interventions are difficult because, most of the time, fire trucks cannot reach the area of ​​fire outbreaks due to the lack of access roads. Also, there are no sources of water supply in the area, and the burning surface can be very large. “Considering the danger generated by these events, we ask the local authorities and citizens to show maximum responsibility in the actions they take to prevent fires, to take the necessary measures to prevent their outbreak and not to intentionally set fire to dry vegetation because this is prohibited ! According to the legal provisions, the burning of stubble, peatlands, forest litter, reeds, thickets or grassy vegetation is strictly prohibited (article 94, paragraph (1), letter n, of GEO no. 195/2005 on environmental protection) and constitutes contraventions, sanctioning with a fine from 7,500 lei (RON) to 15,000 lei (RON), for natural persons, and from 50,000 lei (RON) to 100,000 lei (RON), for legal persons. We draw attention to the fact that the use of open fire for land sanitation, burning garbage, waste and other combustible materials can have serious consequences, both on the environment and the soil, as well as on property or even people’s lives. In such cases, the flames can quickly spread over a large area, and in windy conditions, fires of dry vegetation or household waste can become even more dangerous, if they occur close to houses, economic operators, power networks electricity or places with a risk of explosion”, specifies, in a press release, the Inspectorate for Emergency Situations “Oltenia” of Dolj county.
