Fires and explosions in Russia

There has been a significant increase in fires across Russia recently, both in Moscow and remote regions.

On August 9, an explosion occurred in the city of Sergiev Posad, 70 kilometers from Moscow, at the Zagorsk Optical-Mechanical Plant.

Russian media outlets mention that fireworks exploded in one of the warehouses. Dozens of injuries have been reported.
