To extinguish the fire at the Odessa College of Economics, law, hotel and restaurant business in Trinity street interfere with parked cars. This was stated by the head of the Sses in Odessa region Victor Fedorchak during the briefing, which was broadcast on the air “112 Ukraine”.

He argues that rescuers reported about a fire too late.

“I pay attention that at the time of our arrival, units of the fire area was 700 sq. m, the presence of a large number of people, untimely evacuation of pupils and staff College and the permanent destruction of elements of the building. In addition, a significant number of parked cars interfere with the operational deployment of equipment to rescue people and extinguish the fire,” said Victor Fedorchak.

According to the head of the Antimonopoly region, at the time of the fire College was more than 200 people. The fire quickly spread to the interior finish floor, walls and a wooden ceiling.
