Russia: New blast at arms depot in Krasnoyarsk region caught on camera

Russian Federation, Kamenka
August 10, 2019 at 11:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

At least 12 people were injured in an explosion at an artillery warehouse near the settlements of Achinsk and Kamenka on Friday, four days after multiple explosions killed one and injured 13 more at the same arms depot, the region’s Ministry of Health reported on Saturday.

Footage shows the moment of the massive explosion, with a large fire ball clearly visible from the village of Kamenka.

According to the Russian Defence Ministry, the blast occurred when lightning struck the ammunition storage whose lightning protection was damaged. This "resulted in the ammunition igniting in the warehouse and the subsequent explosion," the ministry says.

Residents of the village of Kamenka located near the ammunition depot are being evacuated to a safe area. Local authorities declared a state of emergency in the Achinsk region.

The ammunition facility first exploded on August 5, killing one person and leaving 13 more injured, according to Russia's Investigative Committee. Nearly 4,000 people were evacuated from settlements within a 20 km (12.40 mile) radius of the facility.
