A market in the Kirovsky District of Donetsk was gutted as the result of shelling and a subsequent blaze that tore through the building on Wednesday. The stalls were not operational at the time of the attack, reportedly as a result of heavy fighting in the area. Two homes nearby were also devastated and consumed by the fire after being caught in a barrage of what is believed to be artillery and tank fire. According to the mayor of Donetsk Igor Martynov at least four people were killed throughout the day in the city. Reports from hospital trauma centres state that during shelling around 90 people were wounded and hospitalised.
