KIROV, February 5. /ITAR-TASS/. As a result of a train derailment at Pozdino station in Kirov Region, 14 tank cars with gas condensate burned out, EMERCOM regional department reported.
He added that at present, there is no fire at the fire location, but a dense smoke remains. “It’s early to say about complete fire suppression,” the spokesperson noted.
Equipment for clearing the railroad has already arrived on the site of the incident. According to EMERCOM, people, who were evacuated from the accident’s area, are gradually leaving temporary accommodation points. The regional department of Russia’s Ministry of the Interior told Itar-Tass that “the cordon has not been removed as yet”, but pledged that in the soonest time people would be able to come back home.
In addition, the residential apartments remain without electricity and gas supply that are to be restored towards evening. EMERCOM explained that it is technically necessary that someone remains in the apartment in the moment of re-launching gas supply.
According to the preliminary version of the prosecutor’s office, the fire was caused by the contact system breakage.
About 700 people were evacuated from the area of the accident. They are residents of houses standing nearby, as well as employees of a bread-baking complex. Some 100 people availed themselves of temporary accommodation points that were staged at a local school and a recreation center.
A task force of 340 people and 100 equipment units were engaged to rectificate the consequences of the accident. Among them are about 180 EMERCOM rescuers and 100 rescue equipment units. Two firefighting trains and over 15 fire teams are working at the site.
