KRASNOYARSK, October 17 (Itar-Tass) — Criminal proceedings have been instituted over the death in a fire in the Krasnoyarsk Territory of nine people, including five children. The territorial department of the Russian Investigative Committee (SK) told Itar-Tass that the proceedings are instituted under the RF Criminal Code article “causing the death of two or more persons through negligence.”
According to a preliminary version of the investigation, the probable cause of the blaze in a private house in the Nizhnyaya Poima settlement of the Nizhneingashsky district of the territory was careless handling of fire.
The alarm call about a fire in a private house in Nizhnyaya Poima was made by eyewitnesses at 00:51, local time, Monday (20:51 MSK Sunday). A family of two adults and five children lives in the house. Another two people were their guests. At the time of the arrival of fire fighters the living quarters and outbuildings were fully ablaze at an area of 180 square metres. It took several hours to extinguish the fire. During the debris clearing rescuers found the remains of nine people - four adults and five children.
According to the regional emergencies department press service, “the fire victims were asleep” and the fire caused such tragic consequences because it was detected too late.
