A large fire at an ammunition depot in central Ukraine has triggered a series of massive explosions, prompting the evacuation of about 30,000 people.

A munitions depot caught fire in Ukraine, on September 27, 2017. There were no reports of any fatalities.

"In some houses, windows and doors have been torn off", said an inhabitant of a neighbouring village, Antonina, came to Kalynivka to be evacuated.

The arms depot was one of the largest in Ukraine, and housed thousands of artillery shells, bullets, and rockets.

Hinting at sabotage, the country's Prime Minister said "external factors" could be attributed to the blasts.

"We need to make sure that the guilty are held responsible". In addition, Ukrainian authorities have closed off the airspace within a 50 km radius of the city.

Ukraine's emergency service began using two An-32 military cargo planes to douse surrounding forests with water to localise the raging flames.

He even claimed it was a birthday present from Vladimir Putin to his opposite number Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian president, who was 52 on Tuesday.

The shocking explosion is the second major incident affecting a Ukrainian weapons storage site this year, according to reports.

"The Military Prosecutor's Office of the Southern area has added a new criminal case to the National Register of Pretrial Investigations under Article 113 of the Criminal Code-subversive activity". About 30,000 people were evacuated from the zone of possible danger.

Conflict between the pro-Russian rebels and government forces erupted in 2014, with more than 10,000 people having been killed and more than 1 million displaced.
