KRASNOYARSK, December 19 (Itar-Tass) — The fire that broke out on Monday morning at the Cheremshanka airport building outside Krasnoyarsk has been localized, nobody has been hurt, Viktor Chavain, an official of the territorial emergencies department, who is at the scene, told Itar-Tass.
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. The wind and open terrain on which the airport is located promoted the blaze spread. The flames engulfed an area of 2.5 thousand square meters. The building has collapsed and totally burnt. According to the emergencies department, it is beyond repair.
The fire fighters are now engaged in watering the remaining structures.
The Cheremshanka Airport services flights on local air routes. It is also the base airport of the Siberian Regional Emergencies Department Centre.
