VLADIVOSTOK, December 13 (Itar-Tass) — Firefighters have managed to stop active burning on a bridge across the Zolotoy Rog (Golden Horn) bay at 09:06 local time and 2:16 (Moscow time) on Tuesday. The bay is seven kilometers long, with a width of about two kilometers and a depth ranging from 20 to 27 meters. The Russian of Vladivostok lies on the hills at the head of the bay.
Smoke keeps rising at the fire scene. Rescuers are pouring water on the bridge’s constructions, a source at the main department of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations for the Primorye region told Itar-Tass. According to preliminary reports, there are no casualties. No damage was caused to the bridge’s main constructions and cable system.
A fire-alarm signal was received late on Monday. Fire crews arrived ten minutes later. The fire covered an area of up to 500 square meters. Nineteen equipment units and more than 70 people were mobilized to fight the fire. The fire had been localized by the middle of the night.
The main task was to prevent fire from spreading under the bridge where a five-storied apartment building and privately-owned houses are located.
