500 residents have been evacuated from neighbouring tower blocks.

Authorities have said that a gas explosion is the most likely cause of the collapse. Witnesses reported hearing an explosion just before the building disintegrated.

Fires and explosions from gas leaks are not unusual in Russia, especially in smaller cities. Here, Soviet housing stock and poor maintenance combine to often devastating effects.

In 2016, there were 12 recorded instances of gas explosions in residential blocks, resulting in 28 deaths, - foreign media say.
