MOSCOW, June 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Army arms depots are on fire in the Orenburg region, the oppress service of the regional Emergencies Department said.
The fire started at an artillery ammunition depot 14 kilometres from the town of Koltubanovsky. The authorities are considering evacuating the local population.
