In Odessa, there was a large-scale fire in a psychiatric clinicwho killed six people. The fire occurred late in the evening of June 10 – the roof of a one-story wooden building caught fire and the fire quickly spread to an area of 500 square meters.
"During the firefight, 15 people were evacuated, four people were found at the scene of the fire, and six people in a serious condition were hospitalized with product poisoning.To put out the fire of the State Emergency Service, attracted 12 units of equipment and 57 employees. At 22:53 the fire was located, at 23:19 the fire was eliminated "– lifeguards have reported.
As Darya Sidorovskaya, the correspondent today, discovered at the scene of the tragedy, the main version of the fire, the rescuers who examined the site of the fire, consider the fire. The criminal case was opened under the article "premeditated murder": one nurse and five patients died.
Correspondents from Segodnya, who visited the site of the tragedy, said the investigative task force continues to work at the scene of the blaze, and their work is monitored by a crowd of onlookers, including children. The hospital guard, who intervened on the morning shift after the tragedy, admitted that during the fire "the horror was happening here".
It is also reported that police searched the offices of three doctors in the department on fire, looking for documents about the fire protection of the building. In addition, officials of the Security Service of Ukraine conducted an interrogation of the deputy chief medical officer in a psychiatric hospital.
In the burned bodies World War II and hostilities in Afghanistan were disabled; many of them did not even understand what was happening. Four people remain in the hospital, and their condition is called heavy but stable. All victims have no burns, their diagnosis – "combustion product poisoning".
Around five o'clock in the morning, the head of the department where the fire was afire asked the doctors for help. He's on outpatient treatment.
It was also known that even before the rescuers arrived, the hospital staff brought in about fifty patients from the burning building. Of the six patients in the clinic, who were taken to the nearest hospital, two died without regaining consciousness due to product-poisoning.
