Over 10 people hospitalized in Rostov-on-Don with burns after heating pipeline failure

A total of 13 people were hospitalized in Rostov-on-Don after a heating pipeline burst and hot water gushed inside apartments, regional office of the Ministry of Emergency Situations told reporters Monday.

"At 01:20 Moscow time, a 1,000-mm heating pipeline failure was reported. A resulting geyser of hot water caused evacuation of nearby residential buildings (as water infiltrated apartments through windows). A total of 35 people were evacuated. Bu 03:30 Moscow time, the evacuated residents returned to their homes. A total of 13 people were hospitalized with burns of lower extremities," the office said.

One 25-story residential building will remain without heating for the duration of repairs. The elimination of the accident involves 48 people and 16 vehicles.
