KRASNOYARSK, December 19 (Itar-Tass) — The roof of the Cheremshanka airport building in Krasnoyarsk has collapsed because of the fire that broke out on Monday morning. There were no immediate reports about casualties there, spokeswoman for the regional emergencies department Yelena Yastrebkova told Itar-Tass.
Meanwhile, the fire spread to the second floor of the building. The room of the air traffic controllers that is above the top floor has been engulfed in flames. Fire fighters are trying to evacuate people staying there. The fire has spread over a total area of 2.5 thousand square meters.
The whole reserve personnel and all equipment have been alerted for fire-fighting efforts. Twelve water tank trucks and four ladder trucks have been dispatched to the airport, located 40 kilometers from Krasnoyarsk,
“It is not ruled out that the fire alarm came late because the local fire-fighting service was trying to put out the blaze on its own,” Yastrebkova explained.
The Cheremshanka Airport services flights on local air routes. It is also the base airport of the Siberian Regional Emergencies Department Centre.
