One Dead in Moscow Fire

One person has died in a fire in Moscow, the Russian Emergencies Ministry reported Thursday.

The fire broke out on the seventh floor of a nine-story building on Startovaya Street in the Russian capital's northeast, the ministry said.

"The flame was extinguished at 02:24 Moscow Time," the ministry's statement said. "Six people were rescued from top floors. One person died."

It was not immediately clear what caused the fire. An investigation is under way.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
