A massive fire occurred in one of the residential buildings, home to 157 residents, in “Huskvarna” in “Jönköping” province.

The fire started at around 20:17 on Sunday evening.

9 fire stations from all over Jönköping province have rushed to the place, and currently more than 60 firefighters are trying to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading.

All the residents of the building were evacuated and regrouped at a nearby school, four people were taken to hospital as a result of inhaling smoke.

The flames and columns of smoke can be seen rising high in the sky all over Huskvarna.

Göran Melin, Jönköping firefighter, said it is too early to determine the cause of the fire, but we ask everyone to get away as possible from the scene of the fire to avoid inhaling smoke which contains very harmful substances, ad we call on all residents in neighboring buildings to close their doors and windows to prevent smoke from entering into their homes.

Melin added, we are working hard to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading, and we will continue to work throughout the night.
