    The flames soared several dozen metres high, so firefighters are preparing aviation units to extinguish it as soon as possible. The emergency services reported that at least 8 people have been injured by the fire.

    A massive fire has erupted at a combined heat and power production plant in the city of Mytishchi near Moscow. According to reports, the blaze started when the gas container in the facility ignited. One of the power units has experienced an outage and stopped producing energy, a source said. Several hours later the emergency services managed to put out the fire.

    The power plant was put into operation in 1992 and predominantly uses natural gas as fuel.
