A frozen food storage warehouse in the region of Kyiv caught fire on Saturday as a result of shelling, Qazet.az reports according to a post by Ukraine's State Emergency Services (SES).

Images published by the SES showed emergency workers racing to extinguish a massive blaze at what appeared to be a single-story warehouse, as towering plumes of smoke rose from the flames.

The SES said the fire had been localised as of 07:54 and that firefighters were still working to put out the flames.
