    Wildfires have destroyed large parts of the forest inside the Chernobyl exclusion zone in Ukraine. Radiation levels remain within the normal range, but the fires have had a significant impact on wildlife there. The site of the world's worst nuclear accident has become a unique conservation area that is home to many rare animals and plants.

    That's horrible what that fire couold have done if it reached the plant reactors. Still since nothing is in the media about he fire anymore, fires were extinguished without any damages. But a ІТ-09Т data panel was showing higherlevels of radiation than usual. And though no more reports are in the news, I do hope no reports were hidden about actual damage
