MOSCOW, June 5 (Itar-Tass) —— One person died in an apartment fire in eastern Moscow, the city emergency situations department told Itar-Tass. The department said there was no explosion.
The accident happened in a residential building on 13th Parkovaya Street. “The fire destroyed an apartment on the sixth floor of a 16-storey building,” the department said.
A charred body was found on the fire scene. The remains are being identified.
The fire of 45 square meters is put out. A number of tenants are evacuated.
The police said there was a bang before the fire. “A man, who had spoken about committing a suicide many times, lived in the apartment. Presumably, he poured kerosene all over the place and set the apartment to fire. Tenants mistook the bang for an explosion,” the police said.
There is a strong smell of kerosene in the house. The investigation continues.
