Krasnodar, 11 October – Yug Times. Last week, a case of internal burning was recorded at the solid waste landfill located in Poltavskaya.
Local residents do not believe that the fire was caused by arson. They think that it happened due to the negligence of officials and violation of the waste storage rules. They wrote a letter to the Presidential Administration and asked the Prosecutor's Office and the Investigative Committee to investigate the true causes of the fire.
Yuri Vasin, Head of Krasnoarmeisky Rayon, inspected the scene of the accident. He supervised the fire liquidation works and summoned a meeting of the Emergency Situations Committee. The works on the site were organised by Sergei Neskhodimov, Head of the 15th Fire and Rescue Squad of the State Fire Fighting Service in Krasnodar Krai, and Igor Nikitin, Deputy Head of Krasnoarmeisky Rayon. The fire was put out by the joint efforts of 45 officers and 12 trucks, 3 excavators, 3 bulldozers and special mechanisms.
