PTI, Dec 28, 2010,

MOSCOW: More than 50 animals, including parrots, monkeys and chinchillas, have died in a circus fire in Russia's second largest city of St Petersburg.
The fire broke out yesterday when the exotic animals had been on display in an out-building close to the circus, a circus spokeswoman was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.
Twenty-three parrots, 10 rabbits, six chinchillas, four canary birds, four monkeys, two iguanas, two ferrets, a snake and a skunk died in the fire, the report said.
However, there were no human casualties. It took the fire-fighters about two hours to put out the blaze.
