Russian police have opened a criminal probe to see whether the deaths resulted from negligence.

The heating pipe involved in Monday's explosion had been in operation since 1962 and been broken repeatedly in the past, Russia' RIA News Agency reported.

Russian lawmaker Oleg Melnichenko said, given the deaths, the Russian parliament might consider a ban on having hotels or hostels in the basements of residential buildings.

“Hostels shouldn't be open in basements, where all pipelines are located,” Melnichenko said.

Last year the Russian parliament banned opening hostels or hotel rooms in apartments in residential buildings, according to The Associated Press.
