Rescue Service Responds to Numerous Brush Fires ({{commentsTotal}})


Rescue officials have been battling dozens of grass fires in recent days.


Just yesterday, the Rescue Board's regional offices received 23 calls of uncontrolled brush fires.

The fire reports came in from all parts of the country, with five different ones within Tallinn city limits yesterday, most of them small.
