Bulgarian firemen were able to salvage from the blaze a historic Russian village, the Bulgarian Interior Ministry informs.
The village of Yazvishte has a 300-year-long history and all houses are made from wood.
After their Sunday success, the Bulgarian fire fighters continue Monday to extinguish fires near the towns of Likino-Dulevo and Noginsk. Those in the vicinity of Likino-Dulevo are working a 20-km wide perimeter and are pouring over water round-the-clock while in Noginsk the perimeter is 4 km.
Moscow has been smothered for days by a dense smog created by wildfires and the concentration of harmful substances in the air is exceeding the norm 7 times.
