During a fire in a nursing home near Tyumen, the owner of the institution lied about the number of people in the house, and this prevented people from being saved. On January 9, an eyewitness to the incident, Ivan Molokov, who helped save people, told about this.
“When we approached the house, there were four of us, we asked the hostess:“ Have you called the firemen? ”. She says, “Yes.” We asked her if there was someone in the house. She said there was, but did not specify the amount. At the same time, the house was closed, although she left it! ” – quotes his words REN TV channel.
According to Molokov, the owner of the house prevented him from breaking the window to save people.
When Molokov entered the house, the flames had not yet engulfed the structure; several people were saved. After that, he and other eyewitnesses asked the mistress of the house if there were still people inside, to which she replied that there was no one inside.
“If she had said that there were people left there, we would have managed to save the people who eventually died,” added Molokov.
