MOSCOW, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— A person died in a fire, which broke out on board the Engineer Nazarov tanker in Makhachkala, the press service of the North Caucasus regional emergency situation centre told Itar-Tass by phone on Tuesday.
“A duty officer of the Makhachkala sea trading port received a call at 12:35 Moscow time that the fire broke out on the deck of the Engineer Nazarov tanker, which is anchored at the Makhachkala seaport,” the press service said. “According to preliminary reports, one person died in the fire,” the press service reported.
