Russia in flames: At least five dead as Moscow rocked by explosion by major train stations


At the start of this month, at least 13 people were killed after a large fire broke out in a recreation centre in Kostroma, 210 miles north of Moscow.

At the time, local officials said the fire began after a patron apparently fired a flare gun inside the building, leading to the roof collapsing. A further five were left injured by the blaze.

A 23-year-old patron of Polygon – a venue used as a cafe, nightclub and bar – was arrested on suspicion of causing the fire, an allegation he was believed to have admitted to.

The director of the company which manages the venue was also arrested.
