#AceWorldNews says the majority of the animals housed in Komsomolsk-on-Amur’s zoo have suffocated to death in a fire, local news agency Portamur.ru reports. Around 240 animals, of 115 different species, were kept at the city’s Python Zoo. Investigators believe the blaze could have been caused by a malfunction with the building’s central heating system.
