Russian shopping center fire kills 48 people.

Smoke rises above a multistory shopping center in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, about 1,900 miles east of Moscow.

 — A devastating fire at a shopping center in a Siberian city killed 48 people and dozens more are missing Sunday, many of them children, a Russian state news agency reported.

The Tass agency quoted firefighters as saying that 40 of the missing at the four-story Winter Cherry mall in Kemerovo were children. An additional 43 people were injured in the blaze, the report said.

There has been no immediate information on the cause of the fire at the mall, which is about 1,900 miles east of Moscow. But Tass reported that the fire started on the top floor and consumed an area of about 16,150 square-feet.

 Sixty-nine others were missing Sunday, many of them children, after the fire broke out in Russia. The reports didn’t say if the victims died from burns or smoke inhalation.

The shopping mall, which opened in 2013, has a cinema, petting zoo, children’s center and bowling, Tass reported.
