According to the guard leader, it must burn heavily in the construction of the building.

An on-site RB tip states that a number of police patrols and fire trucks are on site.
– It burns enormously. The entire area has been smoked, he says.
The police also report a lot of smoke in the area, and local residents are asked to close doors and windows.
– Police have also stopped traffic along Gamle Gardermovegen and it is being diverted via a detour, reports from the Eastern Police District on Twitter.
The nearby Kiwi store is also closed due to the fire. Operational leader Marstad asks people to stay away from the place.
"There is a lot of smoke and it is better if people stay informed through the media instead of staying in the area," he says.
