    The journalists were driving to one of the malls in the Russian city of Vladimir for an inspection in wake of the deadly fire in the "Winter Cherry" shopping center in Kemerovo, which claimed dozens of lives.

    When smoke suddenly clouded the bus, all the journalists left the vehicle and the driver began to extinguish the fire. No one was hurt in the incident.

    The bus was provided to journalists by the local department of the Russian emergencies ministry, as today inspection raids are being conducted in Russia after a major fire in the shopping center "Winter Cherry" in Kemerovo killed 64 people, mostly children.
