July 11, 2019 at 11:49 GMT +00:00 · Published

Drone footage filmed in Mytishchi on Thursday captured the massive fire at the Moscow Region power plant, in which at least 11 people were injured.

According to the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM), the conflagration broke out when a gas container at the facility ignited.

Flames soared at least 50 metres (164 feet) high, so the fire brigade has called in firefighting aircraft to tackle the blaze.

The power plant was put into operation in 1992 and predominantly uses natural gas as fuel.
