Ammunition explosions have rocked a military training area in Russia’s southwestern Samara region.
The incident prompted officials to order the evacuation of some 6,000 people from the nearby village of Nagorny.
Exploding shells set off a fire on June 19 at the Chapaevsk military depot.
An official with the Emergency Situations Ministry said that the fire has been put out and there is no longer a danger from exploding shells.
Officials said one man was found dead in the debris and that more than 40 people have sought medical help in connection with the blasts. About a dozen of them have been hospitalized.
It was not immediately clear what caused the ammunition to start exploding.
A criminal investigation has been opened to look into the possible violation of safety rules.
