The alarm arrived at the police at 19.20 a fire that broke out in a villa at an address near Påskallavik in Oskarshamn.
The fire should have started in the cellar and then spread to the rest of the house.
– It burns at three levels in the house. The building has in fact been completely overthrown, so we are working to limit the fire so that it borders the site and does not spread, "says Lars-Inge Hagman, internal officer at the rescue service in Oskarshamn.
I got out of the house
The nearest house is about 30 meters from the burning villa reported.
"It is a smaller community along the coast, and there are many houses and buildings in the whole society," says Rickard Lundqvist, president of the South Police Police Force.
No one can be left in the house and there is no indication that someone has been injured.
– They got out when the fire started and there was nobody in the house when we came to the place. The landowner must have tried to extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher first, "said Lars-Inge Hagman, internal officer at the rescue service.
The road is blocked
The police are blocked by the road in both directions along the coast.
There must be a high risk of smoke spreading in society.
"What I have understood is such a powerful fire that there is always a risk of spreading to the environment, which is why common sense prevails, says Rickard Lundqvist, South Region's presidential policeman.
Lars-Inge Hagman of the emergency services announces that the prediction is to continue the extinguishing work until midnight.
"At the moment it's more about watching the fire and keeping it under control," he says.
