At the same time, footage of another "cotton" on the peninsula began to be published online.

Residents of Kerch posted videos of the fire. According to them, it happened around 06:00 a.m. - a part of the crossing was immediately engulfed in flames, a thick column of smoke rose above the place of the extraordinary event.
