BARNAUL, February 28 (Itar-Tass) — The Recreation Centre that is a polling station burnt down in the Druzhba settlement in the Tselinny district of the Altai Territory on Tuesday. The blaze also destroyed the equipment for webcasting the voting process during Russia's presidential election that was installed in the building.
The territorial department of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) told Itar-Tass that the fire alarm came at about 07:00, local time, Tuesday. Fire fighting squads were dispatched to the scene. They localised the fire, but could not save the building. The fire engulfed an area of 200 square metres. The preliminary cause of fire is violation of the rules of installation of electrical equipment.
“There were no people in the building when the fire broke out. The polling station has been transferred to a school building,” the EMERCOM specified.
