The bridge across the Zolotoy Rog bay is a facility that will appear in Vladivostok by the APEC summit in 2012. On December, 12th, a formwork at one of the bridge’s pylons caught fire. The fire spread to the area of 500 square meters and it took almost 11 hours to extinguish it. 167 people and 38 vehicles took part in the firefighting.
They have already started a probe to establish the cause of the fire and the structure’s safety. According to the region’s emergencies ministry, “human factor” (welding) is the most likely cause of the blaze.
