Huge blaze, multiple explosions in Moscow as warehouse catches fire

A massive fire has broken out in central Moscow, with several videos from the scene depicting what looks like fireworks exploding amid billowing smoke. The building on fire is used to store pyrotechnics, according to reports.

Footage of the incident taken by eyewitnesses on Saturday afternoon show a large plume of gray smoke over the city center.

The building ablaze is across the river from Gorky Park, close to the Luzhniki Stadium, which hosted the 1980 Summer Olympics.

Reports and videos suggest the building is used as a warehouse to store pyrotechnics, while no official information on the blaze was immediately available.
