MOSCOW, April 26 (Itar-Tass) - The Friday morning fire in a psychiatric hospital in the Moscow Region has been extinguished, the press service of the Russian Interior Ministry’s (MVD) main department for the Moscow Region told Itar-Tass.
“According to specified information, at the moment when the fire broke out there were 38 people in the hospital located in the Ramensky settlement. Two managed to escape and the remaining 36 were killed,” the police said.
