When firefighters arrived into place, it appeared that fire hydrants don't work at one of floors - they are cut simply off from water supply. Besides, the owner of the burning apartment for many years pulled down to himself home any stuff which has been picked up on the street. As a result the apartment to a ceiling was filled with the pressed paper, plastic, rags, etc. As a result, when the firefighter everything is it was succeeded to pump water on 13-й a floor it appeared that fire already got in the pressed garbage.
