Fire at Russian institute kills seven, injures 35

MOSCOW (Reuters) - At least seven people were killed and 35 injured on Tuesday in a fire at a public building southeast of Moscow, the Russian Emergencies Ministry said.

The fire broke out on the fourth floor of one of the buildings at the Institute of State and Corporate Management.

“As a result of the fire, which is now out, seven people died and 35 are injured,” a spokesman said on Tuesday evening.

Fire safety at public buildings across Russia has been criticised after a series of fires where fatalities were high because fire escapes were blocked.
