A fire broke out in a residential building for workers in the suburbs of Moscow, Russia, resulting in the death of five individuals.

Russian emergency services reported the incident on Saturday, highlighting the severity of the blaze.

According to the TASS news agency, a preliminary investigation indicated that an electrical malfunction caused the fire in the Balashikha suburb.

The building, a two-story structure, primarily housed foreign migrant workers.

Despite the rapid response, the fire claimed the lives of five residents. However, emergency services managed to rescue several occupants from the burning building.

This incident underscores the critical need for stringent safety measures in residential buildings, especially those accommodating vulnerable populations such as migrant workers.

Electrical safety protocols and regular inspections can play a crucial role in preventing such tragedies in the future.

Balashikha, a suburb of Moscow, has seen rapid development and an influx of migrant workers, often housed in temporary or shared accommodations.
