In Uzhgorod the "holy" place was burning

September 2 at 2:40 AM "101" emergency service received information about the fire in the Temple of Christ the Savior, which is located on ​​Cyril and Methodius Square in the regional center. Fire rescue units number 14 and number 15 immediately rushed to the scene.  

On the site it was found that the center of the fire was the back room at the altar. Therefore, the primary objective of firefighters was to prevent the spread of fire throughout the building. Firefighting was complicated by strong smoke in the church, but due to the speed and courage of firefighters nearly half an hour later the fire was localized, and in an hour - completely eliminated.

According to the information of the Transcarpathian Technogenic Safety Service Office the probable cause of ignition was the violation of the electrical equipment installation and operation rules. The final cause and damages are being determined.

"Firefighters arrived promptly on call and extinguished the fire, they had to work in gas masks, because the temple were heavily smoky - said to chief of the Propaganda Center of Ministry of Emergencies of Ukraine in the Transcarpathian region Natalia Batyr - now at the scene operatives are working, establishing cause of fire and damage estimates."

В Ужгороде горело "святое" место. Правильно підмітив автор "святое". На жаль церква вже давно не святе місце.

Це божий знак, що там кояться злі вчинки. Церкви перетворили а бізнес центри.
