The fire occurred in Atachevo village of Dyurtyulinsky region on the night of July 13. Inhabitants of the village noticed a dense smoke in one of the farms. They called fire-fighting service. The owner of the farm was away.

Before arrival of fire-fighters fellow villagers independently tried to cope with the fire, as it was said to the correspondent of "Bashinform" agency in the press-service of head department of the Ministry for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Disaster Response on RB. By the moment of arrival of fire-fighting crews, the fire ran through a log house and outdoor constructions. Serious threat of flame distribution on the next premises was created.

Thanks to their effective actions firefighters managed to cope with the fire. Inflammation was liquidated. There were no casualties. The prospective cause of the event was a lightning discharge.
