He specified that one person - an employee of the airport - had been evacuated on a truck ladder and had refused from hospitalization.
According to preliminary data, the fire was caused by a short circuit.
According to eyewitnesses, the fire broke out and spread very rapidly – in no more than 5 minutes. First, there was smoke and then the fire started.
