Reversed villa outside Valdemarsvik
A private residential building is currently burning at Uppåkra between Valdemarsvik and Gryt.
It was at two o'clock on Wednesday afternoon that the alarm came to the rescue service.
But despite the fact that three stations - Gryt, Söderköping and Valdemarsvik, moved out to the site, it was late.
- Unfortunately, we could not save the house and now let it burn down under supervision from the rescue service. We have also minimized the risks of the fire spreading to a house that is next door, says Lennart Ågren, operator of the rescue service.
The effort and the extinguishing work will continue throughout the evening.
