MOSCOW, September 23. /TASS/. Families of the firefighters killed in the Friday fire in eastern Moscow will receive one million rubles each (approximately $15,700), Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in a document posted on the Mayor’s Office website.
The document says that the city authorities will pay for the firefighters’ funerals and the children would receive monthly payments.
On Thursday night, a large fire broke out in a plastic goods’ storage complex on Moscow’s east side, covering an area of 4,000 square meters. The warehouse inferno was extinguished 14 hours later with the help of 300 firefighters and 50 firefighting vehicles.
Eight rescuers died in the blaze, giving their lives to prevent an explosion of 30 cylinders with household gas and an ammonia leak. Earlier reports said the men were on the roof of the burning building when it collapsed.
