12,000-Square-Meter Fire Erupts in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg’s industrial zone erupted into flames after a large hangar caught fire on Dec. 3.

The fire grew to 12,000 square meters as nearby containers, rubber and building materials caught fire.

Over 220 firefighters helped contain and extinguish the fire, and a chemical-radiometric laboratory was sent to the area.

There were no fatalities or injuries from the fire, Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry said.

… 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.
