In Vladivostok, Russia, children couldn’t get out of the burning school because of the locked doors. The incident occurred on Thursday, January 24, at about 13:00. According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations report, the fire started in the basement or somewhere on the first floor.

Pupils and teachers were evacuated. However, one on the possible victims posted a video on the Internet, taped directly inside the burning building. The footage shows that the children could not leave the school because the emergency exit was locked up. Also, it is clear that frightened kids were trying to bust down the door.

Currently, experts are trying to determine the reason for the fire. Pupils and staff of the school were interviewed. Childish prank version is not excluded.
