St. Petersburg’s largest fire in decade extinguished after all-night battle

Firefighters successfully extinguished St. Petersburg’s largest fire in decades after an all-night battle with the inferno. After a warehouse in the city’s industrial zone caught fire, the blaze spread quickly to cover over 32,000 square feet.

The fire began Monday around 5:00pm GMT and was rated at level five – the highest in the Russian system.

Nearby workers noticed and reported the fire to authorities. Witnesses said that the city’s entire southern region was cloaked in smoke, Vesti reported.
