Firefighters are working hard to put out a fire in an old apartment building in Storkata in the center of Borskroon.

The fire broke out on the upper two floors of the building and in the roof structure. Fierce flames from the top two floors light up the night sky. There is a lot of smoke and sparks in the air.

The fire brigade has no control. They are currently trying to prevent the fire from spreading down the building.

It’s a long process for the fire service, so they continue late into the night, says Tommy Erickson, after midnight operations manager for the Southeast Police District.

– No control

A fire alarm was raised at 9.55pm and all emergency services rushed to Storgata 115.

Fire crews from both Porsgrunn, Skien and Larvik are working on site to extinguish the blaze, which led to a full call-out on Thursday evening.

The fire was not easily brought under control. Smoke and fire spread throughout the evening and night.

Terje Lunden, the chief of police at the scene, says it’s out of control. But he downplays the risk of contagion, saying firefighters are “reasonably well under control” and that there is no risk of contagion to other buildings in the city centre.

There were no signs of people being in the building when the fire broke out.

– There are no registered residents at the address. Lunton says we talked to people who came here recently.
