The death toll may rise further as many are still believed to be in the one-story facility in Ramenye, 120 kilometers north of Moscow.

According to preliminary reports, 36 patients and two medical personnel died in the blaze.

“Three people survived - a medical nurse led two patients out of the burning building,” the press secretary of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Oleg Salagaev told Russia's RIA Novosti news agency.
