At 3pm a notice came to the firefighters – Belki must have been smoking for a long time. When we arrived, we saw fire escaping in the gaps between the plates. The firefight lasted until 20:00. The area was guarded for the next two and a half hours. We tested – using thermal imaging cameras – to see if there were any more fires – says the firefighter.
