GORNO-ALTAISK, Altai Republic, September 21 (Itar-Tass) — A fire at an automatic telephone exchange in Gardinka neighbourhood on Tuesday night has left 1,300 subscribers without telephone communication in Gorno-Altaisk, the capital of the Altai Republic. The subscribers have been also deprived of access to the Internet. An Itar-Tass correspondent's office, which is located in the same neighbourhood, is among the facilities affected by the mishap.
An official in the city branch of the Rostelekom Company has told Itar-Tass, "The ATX building has been gutted out by the fire completely. As many as 1,300 subscribers will have to do without telephone communication for a week at least".
"The burned-down ATX was located on the outskirts of Gorno-Altaisk in isolation from the other ATX of the Rostelekom Company. The Company managment is now busy deciding how to reconstruct the telephone exchange and restore telephone communication for the subscribers in the Gardinka neighbourhood," the Company official said.
