MOSCOW, November 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The number of people injured in the fire, which broke out onboard the Sergei Abramov motor ship in Moscow, reached four, chief press officer of the Ministry of Emergency Situations main department in Moscow Yevgeny Bobylev told Itar-Tass on Monday. “Seven people were saved, four of them turned for medical aid,” he said. Four injured people were hospitalized.
Bobylev noted that, according to the captain, 31 people were staying onboard. “Some 15 passengers and 16 crewmembers were onboard,” he said.
The three-deck motor ship Sergei Abramov was used as a hotel.
The fire broke out at about 4 a.m. Moscow time on the lower deck and then the fire spread on the engine room.
Meanwhile, a source in the law enforcement agencies noted that all people were evacuated from the motor ship. “The fate of one person is unclear,” the source said.
Some 12 fire-fighting teams are working at the fire site.
The Sergei Abramov motor ship was built in Czechoslovakia in 1960.
The motor ship passed the complete overhaul in 2003. The ship was considered as one of the best river cruisers.
The cruiser can admit 146 people. The motor ship is 96.18 meters long, 14.99 meters wide and can get the speed up to 25 km/h.
