6 Injured From Jumping From Burning Dormitory Window in Moscow

Six people were hospitalized with injuries after jumping from the windows of a burning student dormitory building in Moscow where a fire broke out shortly before 4 a.m. on Thursday, the Interfax news agency reported, citing the city's emergency services.

The blaze at the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI) dormitory on Fakultetsky Pereulok had spread over 50 square meters of the building's third floor, before the flames were extinguished early Thursday morning, Interfax reported.

Before firefighters arrived, three students jumped out of the windows, and three more followed when the firefighting crews were already at the scene, an unidentified official with Moscow's emergency services was quoted by Interfax as saying.
