Leningrad, February 23, 1991.
At 8 o'clock in the morning on the 7th floor of the hotel "Leningrad" a fire broke out.
At that time the famous French actress Marina Vladi, journalist Ogonyok Mark Grigoriev and several groups of foreign filmmakers lived in the hotel.
After a while after the fire report, almost all the fire brigades of the city were pulled to the hotel.
The main difficulty was that the stairs of the fire trucks did not reach the seventh (actually the tenth) floor, maximum to the fourth.
In addition, the firefighters did not have not only ancillary equipment in sufficient quantities, but even suitable clothing.
People were saved at the cost of incredible efforts and sixteen victims, 9 of which are firefighters.
