Huge fire hits Moscow sausage factory overnight

A large fire was put out overnight at a sausage factory in the Russian capital located in the southeast of Moscow.

Four helicopters and more than 150 firefighters worked to put out the flames that were so intense the site could be seen in central Moscow.

The fire was put out by 2.46am – by that time, it had embraced 2,000 square meters.

Luckily, no one was injured. The fire hit one of the factory’s storages, where no one actually worked.

The Emergencies Ministry later reported that the storages had nothing to do with the factory, but a range of anonymous sources cited by Russian mass media said that the premises did belong to sausages producers.

Police are investigating the possibility of arson. Another possibility is welding works, as the roof of the building was being repaired.
