The issue of forest fires came up again, while the rest of the world is busy self-isolating. The flames almost reached the Chornobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. This could have been a very bad turn.

On April 4, a large forest fire broke out near the Chornobyl nuclear plant. Two helicopters and an aircraft were immediately dispatched to assess and extinguish the flames. In the first few days, the fire was fought by more than 90 firefighters and 18 vehicles. The situation was made worse by the strong wind.
