A building used by Russia's foreign spy service on the outskirts of Moscow caught fire Wednesday, Russia's RIA news agency quoted the service as saying.
Colonel Sergei Ivanov, a spokesman for the External Intelligence Service, one of the successor organizations to the Soviet-era KGB, said the fire happened at one of the service's "technical installations," RIA reported.
He later told the news agency that the fire had been extinguished, and that there were no casualties.
Russian media, quoting unnamed sources in the emergency services, said that the fire broke out in a cable gallery under the spy service's headquarters.
