Fire in Moscow – level 2

Fire in Moscow – level 2

28-09-2016 07:00

Russian firefighters were working to put out a big fire at a plastics warehouse in Moscow. A group of eight firefighters helped evacuate workers from the warehouse, and the group prevented an explosion.

Contact with the group was lost when the roof collapsed. People still had hope, but the fire was too big. It spread over more than 37,000 square metres. After the fire was out, people found the firefighters’ bodies.

Difficult words: warehouse (a place with many things which are going to be sold), prevent (stop something bad from happening), spread (exist over an area).
