Over in Russia. Authorities confirmed the death toll from
a fire at a shopping center in the Siberian city of Kemerovo has risen to at least 53. More than a dozen people, including children,
remain unaccounted for. Emergency officials say the blaze, which started
on Sunday night local time,… was extinguished in the morning, but a roof collapse is making
it difficult for the rescuers to reach the upper floors of the building. According to Russian news agency TASS the
fire started on the top floor, but the cause wasn’t immediately known. Around one hundred people were reportedly
evacuated from the Wild Cherry shopping complex when the incident occurred.
