According to the number of those killed in the Zimnyaya Chery shopping center, the fire in Kemerovo became one of the largest in the newest stories. One of the reasons for the large number of victims is traditionally, to put it mildly, intricate logistics of exiting from the upper floors of typical shopping complexes (there are maximum two elevators, and in order to go down the escalator, you often need to go around the whole floor). Moreover, as EMERCOM employees note, the fire exits from the building were closed.
In connection with the tragedy in the city of Kemerovo, in the Kuzbass and in other regions of the country announced the beginning of large-scale fire tests. What prevents to carry out such checks according to the regulations without bringing to emergency options? - a separate question.
