Four firemen and several volunteers from Zârneşti arrived on the site. The fire was finally extinguished after four hours, at around 22:00.
"Firemen managed to liquidate the fire and prevented it from spreading", said IGSU spokesman Liliana Pușcașu.
The cause of fire remain unclear. Yellow warning of strong wind across Moldova is valid until 14:00 today.
