MOSCOW, April 10 (Itar-Tass) - The fire at the plant Perm Motors in the city Perm that was triggered by the blast was localized, the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. “The total fire area reached 60 square metres,” the ministry stated.
The scrapped titanium exploded in a shop and the roof of two cabins in the industrial building caught fire on Wednesday afternoon. “As a result of the incident two people got burns and 85 people were evacuated,” the ministry reported.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations pledged that there is no threat to local residents.
The open joint stock company Perm Motors was established in 1992 on the basis of the Perm engine-producing plant, which was established in the early thirties of the previous century. The enterprise is one of the leaders in the aerospace industry for the production of reciprocating motors and jet engines, liquid missile engines, helicopter reducing gearboxes and transmission gearboxes, gas turbine units and gas turbine electric stations, which are broadly used in aviation, space industry and the energy sector.
