ST. PETERSBURG, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— The fire-fighting efforts continue at a solid waste dumping site on the Volkhonskoye Highway in the Leningrad Region since Tuesday. The open fire is planned to put down by 6 p.m. Moscow time on Wednesday, a source in the Leningrad regional branch of the main emergency situation department told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The fire spread on 2,000 square meters by Wednesday morning, 350 square meters – the open fire and 1,650 square meters on smoldering fire in the debris. Some 64 people and 29 units of machinery are working at the fire site.
The fire alarm call about a fire breaking out at the solid waste dumping site came at 7.27 a.m. Moscow time on Tuesday in the Lomonosov district (the territory of the waste processing plant). The fire was localized at 1.30 p.m. Moscow time, but the fire-fighting efforts are complicated by the fact that the garbage piles are 30-40 meters high burning from inside.
The investigation into the fire case continues.
