A military depot in Southern Russia was victim to exploding ammo shells on Wednesday causing the evacuation of 6,000 people and injuring at least 30. There is currently an investigation to find out what caused the involuntary blasts at the Chapaevsk military depot in the Samara region.

These kinds of explosions and resulting fires have become common in Russia over the last several years including an incident in October where a soldier's cigarette ignited the dormant ammunition.
