House fire kills 5 in Russia's Far East

MOSCOW, December 27 (RIA Novosti) - Five people have died in a house fire in Russia's Far Eastern Primorye Territory, a law enforcement source said on Saturday.

The fire occurred on Friday in the village of Lazo around 100 kilometers east of Vladivostok.

"It took four hours to extinguish the fire in a wooden house, which was presumably caused by an electrical short circuit," the official said.

He said the owner of the house, his partner, and three other people, including one child, were killed in the fire.
