MOSCOW, June 16 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Emergencies Ministry’s Moscow city department has confirmed that one of the firemen injured when fighting the blaze in a building in northeastern Moscow had died.
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. Oblomov had grave injuries and died in an ambulance. The second fireman is hospitalized in Moscow's Sklifosovsky clinic. He is in grave condition.
The fire is extinguished.
