MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. A high pressure gas pipeline has caught fire in Ukraine’s Gorlovka after shellings at night, the city’s administration said on Wednesday.

"We registered fire at a high pressure gas pipeline after shellings," the Donetsk News Agency quoted an administration official as saying.

Eighteen electric substations were left without power in the morning, but repair workers have already fixed half of them.

"Six residential houses were destroyed" as a result of night’s shellings, the official added.

The DPR defense ministry said Ukrainian forces shelled Gorlovka twice overnight. "They shelled from 152mm artillery and 82mm mortars," the defense ministry added. One person died in shellings and one more was injured.
