Around 5:15PM just outside the city of Achinsk in the small town of Kamenka, munitions located in The Logisticks Support Centre in Kamenka began going off and being sent in every direction. Residents of both city and town totaling around 101,000 people were evacuated to a safer distance until the situation was under control.

One resident said “There were a lot of shells that were seen by people. I think that there will be even more in the fields and the forest around.”

One person was killed as a result of the explosion and the cause of the explosion which set off the munitions is under investigation. This marks the fifth military warehouse to explode or catch fire in Russia so far this year.
