Russia on fire

Youri Lnogradski, associate editor at Jazz.Ru magazine, resides some 80 miles north from Moscow, in a small town called Dubna. Most of current forest fires are to the east and sountheast from Moscow, but Dubna is also affected -- woods burn some ten miles southeast, near Meldino village. Youri has a flight to Norway on Wednesday (he is going to cover the Silda Jazz Festival in Haugesund, Norway, for Jazz.Ru magazine,) but I can totally understand why he enlisted as volunteer firefighter to extinguish the Meldino fire.
