Crews Fighting Fire In Kiev, Ukraine

To add to Ukraine’s issues, emergency crews in the Ukraine’s capital of Kiev are currently battling a huge fire that occurred after an explosion at a fuel depot. The first began on Monday of this week in a building containing about 900 cubic metres capacity of petrol. The situation is on-going.

So far, four people have been killed, including three emergency employees. Due to the pollutants being released into the air, residents with respiratory problems are being encouraged to stay indoors as the situation progresses.
