A large-scale fire broke out yesterday at a military ammunition depot in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk, Russia.
Shortly afterwards, several explosions erupted, injuring several people.
According to the latest data, there were about 40,000 artillery shells in storage.
The ministry reported that the fire was completely extinguished, and the last explosions were filmed on cameras around 5 am Moscow time.
Authorities evacuated residents within a 20-kilometer radius of the ammunition depot as a result of the fire and explosions, and 12 people were injured in the incident, according to recent reports. None was killed.
Fortunately, no major damage was done in the city of Achinsk and other settlements near the warehouse.
A real miracle – one of the explosions was so violent that a powerful shock wave was visible in the sky!
