KIEV, August 27 (RIA Novosti) - A fire at a military depot in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday spread to an ammunition dump and set off a series of explosions, an emergencies official reported. 

***

Local authorities said the explosions at the 500-hectare site made it impossible to attempt to extinguish the fire, which could continue for up to three days.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said in a statement that all personnel had been evacuated and no casualties had been reported.

The ministry also said that the fire at the depot, which stored some 95,000 metric tons of ammunition, was caused by forest fires in the Kharkov Region.
