Police and emergency services were warned for half an hour in the afternoon to a fire in an apartment in a multifamily house in Nikoping. The fire was fully developed when they got there.
"A smoker entered and took out the damaged person. When they entered again, they found another man. This man has died, says Martin Deterström, an officer in charge of the East region.
The injured person is taken to a smoke-damaging hospital.
What caused the fire is still unknown.
– The technicians are on their way to the site. Emergency services have acted as extortionists and we have not yet entered the apartment. He is blocked and we will investigate the place at night, says Martin Deterström.
The fire was suppressed within an hour. Residents of the house, who had to be evacuated during firefighting, could return to their apartments at midnight to point to the TT rescue service.
