During the day, firefighters in the Smolensk region extinguished private houses twice. The settlement of the End in the Kardymovsky district became the site of the first fire. At three o’clock in the afternoon, the villagers saw smoke coming from under the roof of a neighboring house. They promptly called the fire brigade and informed the owners, who were not yet aware of what had happened. Firefighters of PSCh # 31 arrived in the village. But despite the fact that they did not hesitate to go to the call, by the time they arrived, the flames had already quickly spread over the wooden floors of the house. The fire was extinguished, but as a result of the incident, the house with an extension was destroyed by fire.
