On November 11, at about 5:50 am, servicemen of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District Viktor Shatalov and Murad Asluyev, heading to their duty station in a private car, saw a private wooden house on fire located in the village of Kourkovo (Vladimir Region).

The servicemen stopped, immediately got out of the car and went to the house in order to provide assistance. In the burning house, they found three children, 13, 11 and 9 years old, who could not get out on their own because of the blocked front door. The servicemen evacuated the children from the burning house, and also provided assistance in saving property.
