Wildfires have continued to rage in Russia’s Far East and Siberia, fanned by hot and dry weather.

Some of the flames have reached a farm and destroyed buildings around a school.

Large areas of forest have gone up in flames in the region, where a state of emergency was declared a week ago.

Extra fire crews were flown into the Amur region this week, in an effort to contain the fires.
