Fire in Moscow – level 1

28-09-2016 07:00

There is a big fire in Moscow. A plastics warehouse is on fire. An area of 37,000 square metres is on fire.

Firefighters try to put out the fire. There is a group of eight firefighters. The group helps people. The firefighters stop an explosion. When a roof falls down, contact with them is lost.

People hope that they are OK. Sadly, they die in the fire. People find their bodies later on.

Difficult words: warehouse (a place with many things which are going to be sold), put out (stop), roof (the top of a building).
