Unique Aarchitecture Monument in Tver Burnt to Ashes

A fire that flared up in Tver on July 30 has deprived the regional capital city of its unique monument of architecture of the early 20th century.
      The fire outbreak was reported in the afternoon. It seemed like a regular fire in an empty wooden house. However, the house was quite an extraordinary architecture monument.
      The house was located on the right bank of the Tvertsa River. The asymmetric architecture of the building was formed by two constructions a usual log structure with a brick semi-basement and a three-storyed tower with an outer entrance hall below. The house was built in 1914. The cultural heritage monument was empty for a long time. It was impossible to bring it down because of its official status of an architecture monument, and there was nobody to undertake the restoration of the house.
      Locals assume that the architecture monument was set on fire to clear a space for building of new houses.
