fire engulfs fuel depot near Kiev ukraine
« on: June 09, 2015, 04:56:47 PM »
Three fire-fighters were missing and feared dead on Tuesday after a ferocious blast tore through a fuel depot and sparked a fire that threatened to engulf a nearby filling station on the outskirts of Ukraine's capital Kiev.

Videos posted on the Internet showed the force of the explosion and the heat wave it produced setting aflame several fire trucks and ambulances that were rushed to the scene on Tuesday morning.

"Everything is on fire," a voice in one of the videos posted on YouTube said.

A fireman wearing a silver heat-resistant suit and mask was seen running away from the spot of the disaster for safety.

"Everyone, leave. Whoever is still here leave," one fireman said in a video.

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said the initial explosion hit a fuel depot near the Vasylkiv village some 30km southwest of Kiev.

"Gigantic. Firemen have died," Avakov tweeted.
