Helicopters from Russia's Emergencies Ministry on Tuesday joined efforts to put out raging fire at a military site in the Buzulsky region of the country's Orenburg province.
One person was injured and two reported missing after fire broke out on Monday afternoon in the artillery ammunition storage site, triggering a series of explosions, Russian Defense Ministry said.
Over 750 firefighters were battling the blaze, while about 300 residents from nearby villages evacuated, Russian state media reported quoting the Ministry.
The incident was the latest in a string of fires and explosions at munitions storage and disposal sites in Russia this year
