A massive fire has erupted in an airboat manufacturing workshop in the village of Yalove near Krasnoyarsk in Russia.

On January 25, the Russian Telegram channel Shot reported that the blaze spread to an area of more than 1,700 square metres.

According to Russian sources, there were no casualties, while 27 firefighters and eight units of equipment were called in to fight the fire.

The factory is owned by Aligator, a company known for producing military watercraft and jet engines, according to the Shot Telegram channel.

It comes after a similar fire reportedly broke out at the Klintsy oil depot in Russia‘s Bryansk region.

Footage of a large column of dark smoke engulfing Klintsy circulated on Russian Telegram channels.

The Russian Ministry of Defence reported the drone was shot down which sparked the blaze.

Alexander Bogomaz the Governor of Bryansk Oblast said: “The unmanned aircraft was neutralised by electronic warfare assets of the Russian Ministry of Defence.

“During the destruction of the aerial target, there was an unintended release of ordnance in the area of the Klintsy oil depot.

“Early reports indicate that there are no casualties. Fires have been reported in the damaged reservoirs.”

According to local media reports, 13 fire trucks had to be deployed to fight the blaze.

It comes as Ukraine carried out a long-range drone strike on an oil facility in St Petersburg, Russia, which is over 500 miles away from the border.
