MOSCOW, January 31. /TASS/. A man has been found alive at the scene of the fire on the territory of a sewing factory in eastern Moscow, a senior aide to the head of the Moscow department of the Investigative Committee said on Sunday.
"During the additional checks at the accident scene, the investigators managed to find a man in a nearby room," Yulia Ivanova said. The man will be examined by doctors and taken to the investigative department for questioning.
The fire erupted in an old building on Moscow’s Stromynka Street accommodating a sewing shop late in the evening on Saturday. It was localized at midnight and extinguished at 00:55 Moscow Time (9.55 p.m. GMT) on Sunday. About 3,000 square meters have been damaged by fire, with the roof collapsing on the area of 500 square meters.
The bodies of 12 people, including a child, were found at the fire scene. According to preliminary data, the victims were the descendants of the Central Asian states.
Criminal proceedings have been launched over deliberate destruction of property and death of people in the fire, Ivanova said earlier. A source in the law enforcement bodies told TASS that, according to preliminary data, the fire had been caused by arson.
