VIDEO: Apartment Evacuated In Overnight Fire

Residents were evacuated, but officials say nobody was hurt in the blaze.


Residents of an Espoo apartment building were evacuated overnight, as fire raged through the structure.

One building in Tapiola was completely destroyed by the blaze, while two adjacent apartment buildings suffered smoke damage.

Rescue crews were alerted to the fire shortly before midnight, after a neighbour called 112.

Officials say it doesn’t seem like anyone was hurt in the fire which was still being put out by 05:30 this morning. Firefighters estimate they’ll still be at the scene of the blaze during Thursday morning.
