IRKUTSK, April 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Authorities of Siberia’s Irkutsk Region will help 64 residents in the town of Cheremkhovo as their houses burnt down amid strong hurricane winds overnight to Tuesday. Local residents will get monetary compensations, temporary housing and assistance to restore their houses.
“The amount of compensations and the mode of their allocation will be determined soon. A task group headed by First Deputy Prime Minister of Irkutsk regional government Nikolai Slobodchikov is working at the site of the fire,” a press officer told ITAR-TASS.
Meanwhile, the committee will be able to determine the exact number of burnt wooden residential houses within a day, according to the press service of regional emergency situation department. “This is 18 houses, but since this is private housing, it is quite difficult to find immediately after the fire how many houses had actually burnt down,” the press officer said.
The report about 11 residential houses catching fire came at 6:38 local time on Tuesday (21:38 GMT on Monday), as the fire had been spreading very quickly due to hurricane winds. Additional fire trucks from Irkutsk, Angarsk, Usolye-Sibirskoye, Zalarey were involved in fire-fighting efforts.
A woman was injured in the fire, getting 10% of skin burnt.
Malfunctioned electric wire at one of the houses was named as a preliminary cause of the disaster.
