A fire broke out at the Kazan Higher Tank Command School in Russia's Tatarstan, the state-owned news agency TASS reported on March 7, claiming no casualties.

According to TASS, emergency services have localized the fire, which may have started due to faulty electrical wiring.

The school, located in the Tatarstan Republic's capital of Kazan, trains Russian military cadets for tank units.

Russian Telegram channel Baza claimed that the fire impacted the school's barracks and later spread to the roof.

Another Telegram channel, Shot, claimed that evacuations had been completed, reporting no injuries.

The city of Kazan is home to over 1 million residents and lies over 700 kilometers (435 miles) east of the Russian capital, Moscow. An explosion followed by fire at the city's tank training ground was reported last April.

Another incident was reported on March 6 in the far-eastern Russian city of Shagonar north of the Mongolian border. An explosion in a boiler room of a local heating station left thousands of people without heat while killing one person and injuring dozens more.
