A Russian drone attack early on Sept. 19 caused a fire in Lviv that injured one person, Lviv Mayor Andrii Sadovyi reported on Telegram.

After earlier rounds of aerial alerts the night of Sept. 19, Sadovyi warned residents of another attack at around 4:49 a.m. local time.

At 5:17, the Air Force confirmed that Shahed drones were flying towards Lviv.

Shortly thereafter, Sadovyi reported that explosions were heard in the city. He also said the attack caused a fire at an industrial warehouse.

Emergency workers were dispatched to the scene of the fire. Sadovyi said that one person, a 26-year-old man, was pulled out of the warehouse and suffered injuries. He is currently being treated in the hospital.

No further casualties have been reported at this time.

The same night, the Air Force reported aerial alerts in other western regions of Ukraine, including Khmelnytskyi and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts.

While attacks on Ukraine's western oblasts are less common, a massive missile strike on Lviv Oblast on Aug. 15 injured 19 people.
