User notes [translated]:
We arrived in the village of Tamboles as volunteers to help local people protect homes and got into the epicenter of the fire. In the video we're going back to the city from the burning village. The asphalt road is virtually the only exit from the village (there are bypass through Shimorskoe). For half an hour before we came along this road, there was not even a hint of the fire.

Car - Mitsubishi Outlander XL 2007
