As we reported earlier, in the center of Kyiv, on the Lva Tolstoho street, 67, on the second floor of the office and warehouse building, a fire broke out.
The spread of the fire was facilitated by certain substances that were in the room, such as aroma oils and aroma lamps. Their burning could not be extinguished with water, so the fire was extinguished with foam. The fire was extinguished at 15:32. The fire broke out in an area of about 200 square meters.
