The cause of the fire was the ignition of dry grass. Because of the fire, shells intended for disposal began to detonate. The area of fire was about three hectares.
Fortunately, the nearest village is twenty kilometers from the landfill, so there was no risk of throwing fire on residential buildings. No one was injured in the fire.
The fire brigades of the garrison of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation were mobilized to extinguish the fire, as well as the fire brigade of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation. A total of 17 units participated in the fire extinguishing equipment and 53 people.
As a result of their prompt and well-coordinated actions, the fire was able to be localized, after which the fire protection specialists proceeded to strait the landfill.
By the way, in September last year, there was already a major fire at this training ground. Then a forest belt adjacent to the landfill caught fire, and the incident video frames got into the network.
Recall that military facilities, including ammunition depots, are not so rarely featured in emergency reports. For example, in April of this year, an explosion occurred in an explosives production workshop at a defense plant in Dzerzhinsk (Nizhny Novgorod Region), and on June 1, explosions occurred again, resulting in a fire. Then 19 people suffered.
