Heavy fire in an apartment building in Hamar

It is burning heavily in an apartment building in the center of Hamar. A nearby hotel is being evacuated, and residents of the area are being asked to close their windows.

The police were notified of the fire at 22.53 on Wednesday.

It is an apartment building on the corner of Vangsvegen and Grønnegata, which among other things houses an optician’s shop, writes Hamar Arbeiderblad.

The police are working to get in touch with those who are registered at the address.

– We have no information that there are people inside, but we are working to get in touch with those who are registered as living there. There are four people we are trying to get hold of, says operations Per Solberg in the Innlandet police district to NTB.

The smoke caused by the fire creates problems. The Astoria hotel has been evacuated, and according to the HA’s reporter on site, a nightclub has also been evacuated.

Solberg tells NTB that so far there is only one person who must be evacuated from the hotel.
