Siberia, shopping mall fire: 53 dead. “Remembrance service in all Churches of the region” tomorrow

53 people are reported dead and 16 are still missing in the fire that devastated the Vishnya Zimnyaya shopping mall, a four-story building also known as Winter Cherry, in Kemerovo, Siberia, on Sunday. According to the Russian press, the roof of the building is at risk of collapse and although the flames have been extinguished, firefighters are still working with hydrants to avert further damage. The shopping mall also featured a cinema. A “operational headquarters” for relief operations was set up in the nearby school, where rescuers, psychologists and Orthodox priests provide assistance to those affected. According to the website of the Metropolitan See of Kuzbass, to which the city belongs, the person responsible for charitable services in the city and two other priests immediately reached the scene to “meet the needy and pray for those affected”. The support service for people in need of assistance will continue to be delivered today at the Metropolitan See. Tomorrow, there will be “a remembrance service in all churches of the region”. As many children are reported among the victims, the Metropolitan See has also invited children to pray for the fire victims.
