MOSCOW, April 6 (Itar-Tass) —— One fireman was shot by the owner of a burning cottage in Balashikha, Moscow region, the regional police told Itar-Tass.
“According to tentative reports, a fireman is injured. Doctors are examining him,” he said.

The regional emergency situations department told Itar-Tass earlier that the fire broke out in a two-story cottage in the Saltykovka neighborhood. “The cottage owner opened carbine fire to keep off firemen,” the source said. The house is ablaze.
