As rescuers continue to search the burned-out shopping mall in the city of Kemerovo, many have been frantically trying to reach their relatives, including children who were in the mall’s cinema or play area when the fire started.

The death toll of the deadly blaze in Kemerovo shopping mall has risen to 53 people, Russia’s Investigative committee said. 

“Five more bodies have been recovered from the movie theater. The overall death toll now stands at 53 people,” a crisis center representative told Russia's Tass news agency.

At least eleven children are reportedly among the victims.

In the meantime, an estimated 11 people are still missing, but the chances of discovering anybody alive amid the smoldering rubble are slim. Earlier, 64 people had been listed as missing, but authorities clarified that these included the victims whose bodies were already found but had not yet been identified.

Amid conflicting reports, some have described the source of the fire as the children’s playground, suggesting that the trampoline there caught fire after a child allegedly misused a lighter. Another version suggests that electrical wiring at the playground had short-circuited.


Something doesn't sit right with me on this one.  This is SICK
