A huge fire broke out at a tire factory in the Russian city of Barnaul, which was contained after covering an area of a thousand square meters, according to Russian media. Images of the fire are spreading on social networks.
The fire broke out in Altai, a factory that produces tires for airplanes and military equipment.
110 firefighters with 33 vehicles took part in extinguishing the fire, while low temperatures and heavy smoke made extinguishing difficult.
