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.

From the time Arthur picked us up at the airport to when he dropped us off there again, we were superbly well looked after. He's knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Moscow and its history and architecture and great fun to be with too. His knowledge of shortcuts around the city is excellent and we had the oportunity to experience the controlled madness of the Moscow roads in safety! We saw so much more than we could possibly have done on our own and without any of the stress. We highly recommend him.
