Rescuers have extinguished ten wildfires on an area of 799 hectares in the Russian Far East over the past 24 hours, the press office of the Emergencies Ministry said on Sunday.

"Al the ten wildfires on a total area of 799.3 hectares have been extinguished. They raged in two regions in the south of the Far East - the Jewish Autonomous Area and the Primorye Territory," the press office said, adding that no new forest fires had been registered.

A total of 232 rescuers and 95 pieces of equipment were involved in the effort to extinguish the wildfires, the press office said.

In the summer of 2010 an enormous heat wave in Central Russia caused massive wildfires across the country.
