According to information, the fire broke out on the 17th floor of an elite residential complex on Leninsky Prospect, one of the main boulevards of the Russian capital. There was the house of 49-year-old Dmytro Pavochka, who firefighters found without signs of life. According to preliminary investigation data, the former top manager fell asleep with a cigarette, which led to the fire.
