Gulnara Kostelnyuk, a mother of five kids has died tragically in Russia.

The woman died moments after saving her children from a horrific house fire in Russia.

Gulnara Kostelnyuk, 31, was killed in the blaze when the burning ceiling collapsed on top of her.

Moments before her death the woman managed to evacuate her children, aged under 14, from the burning property and save their lives.

The fire started late at night on Wednesday when the family were sleeping in the city of Yakutsk, far east Russia.

Firefighters say the fire started in the kitchen from a heating stove and quickly tore through the wooden house blocking the exit.

The property was engulfed in flames and filled with thick smoke when Gulnara’s older son, 14, was awakened by thirst and alarmed his mother, according to reports.

Her body was found by a crew of firefighters, who arrived at the scene after neighbours called.

One of the children, a nine-year-old girl, was admitted to intensive care with burns and carbon monoxide poisoning. Her condition is moderate, doctors said.

The other children, two boys, aged six and one, and a four-year-old girl, received cuts to their faces and limbs.

Experts say a malfunction in the stove could have caused the blaze. They are now studying the scene to determine the exact cause of the incident.
