Fire opposite Moscow Kremlin

Fire opposite Moscow Kremlin

On 17th of August 2007, when I was walking across the Bolshoi Kamenny Most (Big Stone Bridge) to meet my clients near the Armory Museum, I was able to watch a fire in one of the buildings opposite the Kremlin Cathedrals. The other side of the Moscow River, where the fire was burning, was cordoned off by police and surrounded by many fire trucks. Even one boat was called to resist and stop the fire in the old house which is currently under reconstruction.

The total area of the fire in the small 3 floor building, which is located at Sofiiskaya Embankment, 8, came to more than 250 square meters. The fire destroyed completely all wooden construction on two upper floors of the old building. Seven fire brigades and one boat were involved in the operation to stop the fire.

Now officials from fire prevention inspection are determining the cause of the fire and investigating the company which was reconstructing the house.

Great blessings this new years to you and to all of russia. The experience of the holidays continues to set in motion many questionable traditions. For many in the states it is a difficult time which brings sadness. when an over commericalized atmosphere creates images that are not real for all families. The important issue of christmas is being able to take time out to be grateful for what is in ones life. To pray for a better world where we can seek an understanding of one another. Primarily to assume that we are our brothers keeper, and we have a responsibility to serve those less fortunate than ourselves. I pray that as stewards of the the earth we become more concerned with the caring of the earth, each other, and all sentient beings in the next decade.
As for russia, My husband and I fell in love with her people and her beauty. Just shows you that 70 years of tyranny cannot darken the human spirit. My warmest wishes that the US and Russia can work together to collaborate as equal partners. I know our people can, lets hope our leaders can as well.
blessings!
