MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) — One people died and nine people were injured during a fire at a building in the Moscow region, the regional emergency response department told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The fire occurred in the village of Mashkovo, Lubertsy district, in a two-storey building, which was covered with plastic, on Wednesday, December 19. “Two thirds of the building was used as a warehouse while people lived in the other part of the building,” the emergency department said.
