Extinguish Blaze at Russian World Cup Stadium

Firefighters have extinguished a blaze
at a World Cup stadium in the Russian city of Volgograd.

Emergency workers were called to the
stadium, which is still under construction, before 7 a.m. on
Wednesday morning.

The
fire began after a portable heater set light to a pile of styrofoam,
according to the Volgograd region’s Emergency Situation Ministry. Flames
spread across an area of approximately 100 square meters before being
extinguished, officials said in a statement.

No casualties were reported.
The Volgograd Arena is scheduled for
completion later this year. It has a planned capacity of almost
45,000 people and will hold matches in the group stages of the FIFA
2018 World Cup.
