In Khust district, a house was burning

At 21:56, on February 9, the operational and rescue service of Khust district received the information about a fire in house of a 73-year-old resident of the village of Horinchevo.

According to preliminary data, the fire could have been be the result of violation of stove heating rules. The owner of the house kindled the stove, and through a cracked chimney a spark could have spread on the ceiling. Then, the fire quickly spread over the wooden house.
