In the Kharkiv region, Horobivka village burned down as a result of forest fires. This was announced by head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Oleksiy Kucher in a comment to 112 Ukraine TV channel.
According to him, there are no victims reported.
"One settlement burned down (Horobivka, - 112 International.) - approximately 27 houses. Fortunately, there are no victims, people were relocated. We have specific places for the accommodation of people. However, most of them refuse so they go either to their relatives or to neighbors, to friends. The situation is now under control because the wind has calmed down and does not spread the fire to other settlements. I arrived in Dvorichansky district about 15 minutes ago, now I am gathering a meeting, I will receive more detailed information from the State Emergency Service and other bodies," Kucher said.
