During the night a fire occurred in a municipal summer camp in Odesa, according to Dumskaya.

The building caught fire at 11:30 pm. According to eyewitnesses, the fire alarm didn’t go off. The children woke up when they smelled smoke. Camp leaders managed to organize an evacuation quickly.

There were 150 children at the camp. Some of the kids inhaled a lot of smoke, while others are in shock.

The fire hydrant at the camp didn’t have any water, so the firefighters couldn’t start eliminating the fire for some 30-40 minutes.

Three children jumped out of the window of the burning building. Doctors say they have been hospitalized. One child was injured during the fall, two others inhaled a lot of smoke.

Another three children haven't been found yet.
