said that rescuers struggled to contain and extinguish the fire as parts of the building began to destabilize. Thirteen people were hospitalized, including an 11-year-old boy who remained in a grave condition, the Investigative Committee said in a previous statement. The boy's parents lost their lives in the blaze, Skvortsova said.

Health minister Veronika Skvortsova said that the most seriously injured survivor was an 11-year-old boy who jumped from the top floor to escape the fire, which killed all his family, but there were hopes for his survival.

Earlier Petrenko said four people had been detained and questioned in relation to the fire according to Tass.


The Winter Cherry shopping center, a business complex with a cinema, an indoor skating rink and a petting zoo, is usually packed with people on Sunday afternoon.

The Prosecutor General's Office on Monday ordered all shopping malls in Russian Federation to be checked for fire safety features. The cause of the fire remains unknown, though Chernov suggested a child may have used a lighter to ignite the foam filler of a trampoline in the play area, according to The New York Times.

Russia's Investigative Committee has opened two criminal cases, including the fire safety rules violations and the deaths by negligence, over the incident.

Kemerovo regional Gov. Aman Tuleyev announced that families of the victims of the fire would receive 1 million rubles, about US$17,490, in compensation for each death.
