MOSCOW — Russian state TV is reporting the death toll from the massive forest fires that have wiped out villages and vast areas of woodland has risen to around 30 people, but officials say some of the worst blazes are under control.

Rossiya-24 TV says fires are still afflicting at least 14 regions early Saturday, with the Voronezh and Nizhny Novgorod provinces the worst affected.
