In Moscow (Russian Federation) today, May 30, a powerful fire broke out in a warehouse covering an area of ​​two thousand square meters. A helicopter was involved in extinguishing the flames, according to the Telegram channel of the Russian Emergencies Ministry and Russian media.

A fire broke out in the eastern part of the capital of the aggressor country in the Novogireyevo District. Due to the intense fire, Martenovskaia Street, where this building is located, was closed.

Russian Emergencies Ministry officials say that extinguishing the fire at the warehouse in Moscow is complicated by the high fire load of the building.

It is noted that inside there are containers with flammable liquids.

Also, the Russian ministry reported that they are trying to extinguish the fire with 120 firefighters, 40 pieces of equipment, and the Ka-32 helicopter.

As the Russian press writes, the fires at the warehouse in eastern Moscow were classified as 3rd rank complexity. Residents reported hearing some bangs during the fire.

Earlier in May, a building of the district administration in Sokolinaya Gora District in Moscow was on fire. The Russian Emergencies Ministry claimed that the fire occurred in a trading-office building.

Also, this month in the Russian town of Naro-Fominsk, located near Moscow, a large fire broke out at a building materials warehouse.

In mid-April, a fire broke out in Moscow on the premises of the Avangard factory. It is part of the joint-stock company Concern for Air and Space Defense Almaz-Antey.
