TULA, December 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The fire at a mental hospital in Russia’s Tula region that claimed two human lives might have been caused by a cigarette butt, a spokesman for the regional police department told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
According to earlier reports, two people died in the fire at the Belev mental hospital. As many as 321 people, patients and employees, were evacuated.
