KHABAROVSK. April 5. VOSTOK-MEDIA – Viktorya Partola, a student of Khabarovsk School No. 63, received a medal from the All-Russia Volunteer Fire-Fighters Society.
On October 28, 2009, fire occurred in a wooden house in Batareiny Side Street, Khabarovsk, a spokesman for Khabarovsk Krai Emergency Situations Department told Vostok-Media. Viktorya and her mother were the first to notice and report the fire. There were three children in one of the apartments in the burning house.
