MOSCOW, October 1 (RIA Novosti) - Residents are being evacuated from an eight-storey residential building on fire in north Moscow, the capital's firefighters said Sunday.

No casualties have been reported since the fire broke out on the top floor of a building on Leningradsky Shosse, and spread to the rest of the building, a source in the firefighting service said.

Firefighters fear a natural gas explosion may occur.

"Firefighters can smell a strong gas smell at the entrance, where flats are on fire. An emergency brigade of Mosgaz [the city's gas distributor] has been called to the scene," he said.

Five firefighting units are currently battling the blaze, and evacuating residents.
