Huge explosions rock remote Russian military base in Siberia sending hundreds of terrified residents in 13-MILE exclusion zone fleeing for their lives A series of huge explosions at a major munitions depot in remote Russia has led to a mass evacuation. One person was killed and at least seven wounded at the military store near Achinsk in Siberia, reports suggest. Exploding missiles caused massive fireworks at the depot posing dangers to residents, with a 13-mile radius being evacuated as a giant fire raged. But there were reports of soldiers from the military facility next to the exploding ammunition depot hiding in a bomb shelter and unable to escape. 'The territory is cordoned, soldiers can't yet get out of the bomb shelter because explosions continue,' press service of Krasnoyarsk region told Interfax Sibir. Plumes of black smoke rose from the plant in Kamenka village, base of Russia's 74,008 military unit in Krasnoyarsk region.
