MOSCOW, February 20 (Itar-Tass) —— The fire, which was triggered by the gas blast at a bakery in the military township Gorki in the Moscow Region, was put out, chief press officer of the Moscow regional police department Yevgeny Gildeyev told Itar-Tass on Monday.
He confirmed that the gas blast killed two people. “They were found dead. They are being identified,” Gildeyev said. He noted that another 11 people were injured. Seven of them are in heavy condition.
