A Fire At A Coal Mine In Russia’s Siberia Region Has Killed At Least 11 People And Left Several Others Missing.
According to Russian media, local grower Sergei Tsveliv said that there were 285 miners in the mine at the time of the accident. 200 people have been rescued in the rescue operation.
Authorities say 45 workers were injured in the blast. The condition of several miners deteriorated due to smoke filling in the mine.
According to officials, rescue operation is underway to rescue the remaining people trapped in the mine. There is no contact with the miners trapped underground.
The government has not yet commented on the nature of the accident. But it is worth noting that 13 workers were killed in a methane gas explosion at the mine in 2004.
