Mobilized soldiers’ tent camp burns down in Russia’s Orenburg region - media
On January 9, fire engulfed a tent camp of mobilized troops in the village of Nizhnyaya Pavlovka, Orenburg region in Russia
Russian mass media reported that the probable culprits of the fire might be drunk officers. In particular, the tents of those mobilized from the Samara region were damaged.
According to one of the conscripts, the fire truck that was on duty in the unit was allegedly without pressure, which is why the military had to wait for the city rescuers.
"Everything burned to the ground, I jumped out in shoes, the boy jumped out in his socks. By the time the second (fire truck - editor's note) arrived, the place was already burning for a long time," said an eyewitness to the fire.
The father of one of the mobilized soldiers said that his son was not inside, he was returning to the unit from vacation, but the family assumes that all the things that were bought for him before joining the army were burned down.
