There have been no reports about any casualties or evacuations so far.

The blaze erupted in an abandoned building located on the territory of the Moscow Serp & Molot (Sickle and Hammer) iron and steel plant – one of the oldest major industrial enterprises in the central part of Russia.

Founded in 1883, the plant was closed in 2011.
