Accidents and natural disasters: Eastern police district reported the fire at 18:38. By then the fire brigade had already started the extinguishing work.

A major risk of spread was reported, but not to buildings. According to the police, there was a fire in the area of ​​300 by 250 metres.

A forest fire helicopter from Kjeller was sent to contribute to the work.

Around 10 p.m. the fire brigade had to tackle the fire. It was also decided that there would be a watch throughout the night to keep watch.

– The fire is now out, but we will have six people on site throughout the night. Now when night comes and it becomes even more risky to walk in the terrain, it is good to have control, says duty manager Leif Høyland at the East 110 central to Smaalenenes Avis.
