More than 100 forest fires broke out in the eastern part of Russia's Siberia, affecting more than 57,000 hectares of land, Russia's Itar-Tass news agency said Thursday.

Thirty-six of these fires were confined. But fires are still raging in the Transbaical region where 34 large blazes have engulfed an area of 52,000 hectares, the report said.

Some 3,450 personnel and 583 units of fire-fighting equipment have been mobilized to fight the blazes, which are believed to be caused by the burning of dry grass by local residents.
