A fire has started as the site of the crash of the Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777 airplane, the Ukrainska Pravda online publication reports.

The belongings of the crash victims are burning. According to Ukrainska Pravda’s correspondent, the fire was caused by weather conditions.

As reported earlier, international experts still have no access to the crash site because of obstruction by pro-Russian separatists. "Representatives have been waiting for a long 96 hours to get to the crash site and begin an objective and impartial investigation," President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said earlier.

Poroshenko instructed Ukrainian troops to suspend all combat operations within a 40-kilometer radius of the crash site.

A Boeing 777 belonging to Malaysia Airlines was downed by a suspected missile near the towns of Torez and Snezhnoye (Donetsk region) on July 17. All the 298 people aboard the aircraft died.
