MOSCOW, January 25 (Itar-Tass) — The fire in the territory of the Moscow-City business centre occurred on Friday in the OKO Tower, the business centre’s press service said.
Earlier information reported the fire at the Vostok Tower, where a fire had occurred a year earlier.
This time, EMERCOM reports, insulation caught fire from a heating gun on the 24th floor. The area made 60 square metres, and the extinguishing took about an hour and a half. Rescuers evacuated 220 workers. Initially, EMERCOM said about one injured, but later on this information was not confirmed.
On April 2, 2012, extinguishing of a fire in the Vostok-2 tower of Moscow-City took about four hours. The mission in the building, which experts called most high and most continuous construction project in the capital city, involved 25 fire brigades and four helicopters of the Moscow Aviation Centre. Despite the use of helicopters, the fire continued for a very long time. Practically the entire upper floor was on fire.
