Fire Destroyed Krasnoyarsk Airport

Yesterday a large fire destroyed Cheremshanka airport building in Krasnoyarsk. The fire broke out in the roof and spread rapidly until terminal building collapsed. Nobody has been hurt, there were no passengers at the time.

      The blaze covered the large area of 3,000 square meters because of the strong wind. It took about 100 emergency workers to stop the fire.

      The building has completely burnt down and can't be restored. It is supposed that the fire was caused by a short circuit.

      Cheremshanka is the secondary airport of Krasnoyarsk, located 35 km from the city. It was opened in 1988 and mainly provided regional and domestic flights.

      The primary airport Yemelyanovo will now be responsible for all flights destined for the destroyed airport.
