A huge fire on August 2 broke out at the Botanic Garden in Bishkek, one of the employees told AKIpress.
According to her, the workers do not know what was the cause of the fire.
However, she said that her son some minutes before the fire occurred saw a man holding a gas can.
“The man was running down the street with a canister. Then the fire broke out. In addition, the fire occurred suddenly and immediately. One match could not cause such a huge flame,” she said.
According to employee of the Archa Initiative Fund Zuhra Yakupbayeva, this is the third fire in three days.
The workers suspect that was an arson. Because they claim that the employees of the Botanic Garden and the Fund said the flame spread over 5 locations at once.
Yakupbayeva believes that this is connected with a press conference against construction of a veterinary laboratory on the territory of the Botanic Garden.
The fire burned dozens of plants in the Botanic Garden.
