Fire hits building downtown Baku
A fire hit a residential building in the Sabayil district of Baku on Friday afternoon. No casualties are reported.
Fortunately, no one was home when the blaze broke out at 2 p.m. at a two-room apartment on the fourth floor of the building located off the Neftchilar Avenue.
Although the State Fire Department is located nearby, the delivery of fire-extinguishing equipment to the site was delayed due to traffic jams. The blaze was put out by the Emergencies Ministry workers who arrived at the site ahead of the firefighters.
The district gas supply department dismissed assumptions that the accident could have resulted from a leak.*
