VLADIVOSTOK, May 20 (Itar-Tass) —— All the tenants evacuated in a fire at the artillery ammunition depot in the Primorye territory have returned home, the territorial emergency situations department told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
Rescuers warned local residents that dud munitions might still be found in their backyards. So anyone who finds a suspicious object must call the hotline. The Emergency Situations Ministry has posted a bulletin with instructions what to do in such cases. The ban on visiting the three-kilometer zone around the depot will last for some time, Primorye Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky said on Saturday.
The fire broke out at 5:20 p.m. local time (10:20 a.m. Moscow time) on Friday, seven kilometers east of Sungach in the Spassky district. Munitions started to explode. One serviceman was hurt. About 1,800 people were evacuated from Sungach, Dukhovskoye, Novorussanovka and Zelenodolskoye.
