Commander of a unit of firefighters Artyom Oblomov died when fighting the large fire in northeastern Moscow, a departmental press service source told Itar-Tass.
Oblomov was 27 years old. He was born on April 20, 1985. He left a wife and a daughter who was born a few months ago.
The roof collapsed in the burning three-story building, at First Rizhsky Side Street, when there were firemen at the site. Two firemen were seriously injured.
