On November 14 the fire broke out on the motor ship Sergei Abramov. The entire neighborhood was covered with smoke. Nothing could be seen due to it.
All three decks were on fire.
The part of the ship that was on fire could not be saved.
31 people were aboard the ship. 15 of them were visitors of the restaurant. Four people suffered from the fire, two of them were taken to the hospital.
Fire fighting measures were taken almost immediately.
After the fire had been extinguished rescuers continued removing those constructions that had been burnt.
The fire spread fast enough because of a large amount of fuel aboard.
The three-deck motor ship Sergei Abramov was built in Czechoslovakia in 1960.
