At least eight people were injured after a series of loud blasts rocked a military base, reportedly packed with around 40,000 artillery shells, in Russia. An evacuation of all nearby villages was ordered. Monday’s explosions happened at an army installation outside the small village of Kamenka in the Krasnoyarsk region of Siberia. The blasts were triggered by a fire that broke out inside a munitions depot. A blaze is currently raging in the area, which houses around 40,000 125mm and 152mm artillery shells, typically used by tanks and howitzers, the media reported, citing military sources. Base personnel took cover in a bomb shelter when the explosions began.
