Rescuers extinguished the fire that occurred when a helicopter crashed in Kremenchuk, Poltava region, as spokesperson of the State Emergency Service Svitlana Rybalko told 112.ua.
“The fire was extinguished at 23:05. But it doesn’t mean there was always open fire: it was liquidated in some half an hour, but there were occasionally some sparks, that we put out. We couldn’t fully disassemble the remains of the helicopter’s construction because the police were recording the incident, and we couldn’t move the debris. After 23:00, there were 2 cars and 8 staff left on duty,” she said.
According to Rybalko, now there are rescuers on duty, and the investigators are expecting a commission from Kyiv.
