Several videos have been shared online that appear to show a Russian fighter jet crashing into a building in Russia.

Footage uploaded to social media earlier this morning showed the fighter jet, believed to be a Su-30, diving before crashing in Irkutsk, a Siberian city of more than 600,000 people.

Videos allegedly taken after the crash showed dozens of people watching as flames spread across a building in a residential area.

Some people were seen walking toward the crash site when a helicopter was spotted overhead.

The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations told the Russian news agency Tass that the plane crashed into a private wooden house on Second Sovetsky Lane.

The publication added that the regional Ministry of Emergency Situations has confirmed the incident.

The crash came just days after another Russian fighter jet crashed into an apartment building in Yeysk, a town near the Ukrainian border.

Russian officials confirmed the crash happened to state press agency Tass, which said the plane involved was a Su-34 model.

This is an evolving story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
