The regional government of the Perm Territory in the Urals resigned on Wednesday over the recent deadly fire, which killed at least 124 people.

The regional government of the Perm Territory in the Urals resigned on Wednesday over the recent deadly fire, which killed at least 124 people.

"The governor of the Perm Territory, Oleg Chirkunov, said the new government will be formed as soon as the investigation into the cause of the fire and internal investigations are completed," the government said in a statement.

Three regional ministers, responsible for business and trade, urban development and public security, were sacked.

Other government members will continue to perform their duties as acting ministers until the investigation is completed.

The fire at the Lame Horse club in Perm occurred during an indoor fireworks display in the early hours of Saturday. The death toll rose to 124 when a 27-year-old woman died in hospital on Wednesday.
