    nothing in the - main media -. suppose who cares about a lonely woman in the forests of Siberia? or the oligarch Oleg Deripaska who paid for all that. At least Agafaya will be able to live out her remaining days in some sort of comfort. let's just hope that none of the many people who worked there brought -the bug - with them.

    Amazing woman.

    I see there's a wood stove in the cabin, for heat.

    Luba says she is not allowed to chop down small tree in forest for firewood for her cabin near Krasnofimsk, you are supposed to only gather the branches that have fallen off.

    You can't burn fresh cut trees anyway, the wood must be dried for a few months.

    Not quite true - you can burn some types of wood when wet and freshly cut, but the heat / energy you will get from it will not be its maximum and the sap will burn fiercely.

    Ideally, firewood requires anywhere from 6 - 24 months to dry. It is best to cut, split and store wood in late winter and early spring for use during the following year.

    This is because it allows the wood to dry over the summer months, and season in time for when it is needed during the next period of colder weather.

    Yes, pine can burn because of the sap, we used to just light the pine sap on fire on living trees to keep a flame alive.

    i am sure, as the rangers are keeping contact with her, they will also always make sure that she has a good store of firewood. dried and cut into small pieces that will fit in her stove.

    Those people in Texas wish they had wood stove, when the whole state froze. Happened to my sister in Arkansas, they live alone, way out in the country. The power failed, the snow was 1/2 a meter, so they could not go anywhere, the temperature was minus for a week. Now they have a wood stove, but have never used it! I had wood stove in basement of my old house, I stopped using it, I was afraid I would catch the house on fire.

    wood burning stoves need in deed a correct setup and that will include the chimney. and that should be done under or with the supervision and help of a professional. if one has a house and a -furnace - in the cellar, most of them are these days - multi use -. one can heat with gas, oil, pellets, even carton and paper or wood. after such an experience and if one has the space or palce, definitely a worthwhile investment.

    Yes the chimney needs to be the correct height in relation to the roof of the house, if not you will fill your home with smoke.
