Shopping Mall fire in World Cup city

Just two weeks before it is due to host one of this year’s World Cup soccer matches between Iran and Spain the Russian City of Kazan in Tatarstan has been rocked by a massive fire that broke out in a shopping mall.

There were no reports of deaths or injuries and all staff working in the shops were evacuated safely. But early reports about the blaze said firefighters were unable to tackle the flames because of high temperatures and there were fears that the mall would collapse.
