The city authorities have given a strange explanation for it.
A large fire broke out in Belgorod, Russian Federation, allegedly because of "ignition of the bed of rushes". Fire services are working at the scene. There is no information about possible casualties as a result of the accident.
This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to a statement made by the city mayor Anton Ivanov.
"A bed of rushes caught fire in Industrialnaya Street near the railway depot," he wrote in his Telegram.
He also assured that the situation was under control and urged "not to worry".
According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry, the fire broke out in the area near Savino. The total area of the fire is about 150 square metres.
Meanwhile, local blogs are posting on the net the videos of the fire in Belgorod.
