Deadly fire engulfs Russian shopping centre

One of Moscow’s biggest shopping centers was set on fire, resulting in the death of at least one person.

Authorities said that the blaze spread to an area of approximately 7,000 sq m at the Mega shopping center in Khimki, northwest from the Russian capital.

Fire caused part of the structure to collapse, limiting firefighters’ ability to fight the flames.

Before the centre was opened to customers, it broke out.


Russia’s Investigative Committee which investigates major crimes said that it was investigating the cause of the fire.

Initial reports suggested that arson might have been involved.

Authorities later stated that the blaze was caused by welding, which apparently violated safety regulations. A probe was launched.

Before the conflict in Ukraine, the shopping center housed a variety of Western shops including IKEA.
