Fire broke out at a five-story institute in Moscow on Tuesday, killing at least four people and injuring more than two dozen, Russian emergency officials said. The blaze, which erupted around 1 p.m. at the Moscow State Institute of State and Corporate Management, forced some people to jump four or five stories into firefighting rescue nets below or climb onto tree branches. Russian television showed others shimmying down drainpipes, and a rescue helicopter working to evacuate people. Viktor Beltsov, spokesman for the Emergency Situations Ministry, said at least four people were killed and 29 were treated for smoke inhalation, burns and other injuries.
