A warehouse near Komsomolskaya Square in Moscow caught fire on Sunday. Flowers and furniture are said to have been kept in the two-story hall. Later in the building, the ceilings partially collapsed. Russian Railways sent fire engines to help fight the fire.

The fire on an area of ​​2,500 square meters, which according to preliminary information broke out due to a defect in the electrical heating system, could only be extinguished around midnight. The police are investigating.

On Monday morning, firefighters found seven bodies, the news agency reported RIA Novosti. According to preliminary information, six Russians and one citizen of Tajikistan were among the dead, said a representative of the rescue services.

Komsomolskaya Square is colloquially called “Three Stations Square” and is a major hub for travelers to and from Moscow. The Leningrad, Yaroslavl and Kazan railway stations are located there. Train traffic did not have to be restricted due to the fire brigade operation.
