Fire at the City Hall in Fredrikstad – Do Not Control All Residents – NRK Østfold – Local News, TV and Radio


The center of Fredrikstad is located in a downtown area. There is a lot of smoke development and the flames are blowing the top of the building.

"Some people have been evacuated from the City Hall and neighboring homes, but there is no overview of people registered in the title," says Ronny Samuelsen at the Eastern Police Headquarters Operations Center.

– I think 10 people are registered at the address. There are some of which we do not have an overview, he says.

East 110 Central says its strengths are on the spot both near Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg. In addition, there are forces called Moss.

– Quickly. I understand that there is no control, "Samuelsen said.

The building is located at the end of the Fredrikstad pedestrian street on four floors.

"Firefighters stand up on the ladder and spray the water from the ceiling," said the NRK reporter, Rune Fredriksen, on the spot.

The area is blocked, and many nervous residents and others stand outside the barracks and look at what's happening.

"There is some risk of dispersion as the building is burning beside other business buildings and homes," says Fredriksen.
