The blast, which killed one and injured at least six, according to EMERCOM, occurred in a third floor apartment in the building. It caused the third, fourth and fifth floor walls to collapse, the local Investigative Committee department reports. The explosion left five apartments completely destroyed and 10 more damaged.
