Ten building workers died Moscow fire


MOSCOW: Ten workers died and at least 14 were injured on Saturday after a fire at an underground car park in a building in southwest Moscow, local police said.
Seven of them died while on the way to hospital, Emergencies Ministry spokesman Viktor Bryukov said. Another ten people were rescued unharmed, he added. At least two of the injured are in a critical condition.
All those who died were thought to be construction workers who were carrying out work on the site, and were from the “near-abroad,” a term officials in Russia often use for those from former Soviet republics. Many people from the former USSR republics work in construction in Russia, and some sleep on site. The building had been visited several times by fire safety inspectors, Brukov said.
