A large fire has engulfed a warehouse in Odintsovo in Russia’s Moscow Region.
Video and images posted on social media showed a huge blaze and plume of smoke on Wednesday evening.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia in the Moscow Region told RIA Novosti that a warehouse spanning approximately two thousand square meters was ablaze, leading to the emission of visible smoke that extended over several kilometers.
Authorities have localised the fire, and as of the latest update, no information regarding casualties has been reported.
Different versions emerged regarding the nature of the incident. According to several Telegram channels, local residents heard an explosion a moment before the fire erupted.
According to sources from the telegram channel Baza, the fire originated at a warehouse storing beer products on Zelenaya Street.
Additionally, preliminary details from the Mash telegram channel suggest that a construction site in proximity to the 'Odinburg residential complex' was also affected by the fire.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly reported that the air defence forces shot down drones in the Odintsovo district of the Moscow region earlier, specifically in early July, August 1st, 9th, and 10th.
All those incidents were attributed to the attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
