BARNAUL, April 27. /ITAR-TASS/. A criminal case was opened over a fire which broke out at the drug addiction rehabilitation centre in south-eastern West Siberia’s Altai territory on a charge of providing services that do not meet safety requirements for life or health of consumers, the press service of the Russian Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
Detectives found that “in the morning on April 27 a fire broke out at a private rehabilitation centre for drug addicts near Krasilovo Lake in Kosikha district, eight people were found dead after the fire was put out.” “A group of detectives are working at the fire site. The reason for the fire is being investigated,” the press service said.
“During the investigation detectives will assess actions of clinic personnel who cared for patients and bodies controlling this clinic,” the press service added.
Meanwhile, the regional investigative department of the Russian Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass that more than 30 people were staying at the clinic at the moment the fire broke out. Six of them have got injuries in the fire and are being treated at the central district hospital. The whereabouts of other people is unclear yet.
Several theories for the fire are being probed, including premeditated arson and careless handling with fire.
Specialists keep removing debris at the incident site.
