Half of the four-apartment townhouse in Orimattila, Päijät-Häme, has been destroyed in a fire that broke out the morning before Sunday.

- The house was in full burning at the other end when we arrived at the site, but this fire seems to be limited to two apartments, says the on-duty firefighter Juha Lahtinen.

No one was injured in the fire.

At the start of the fire, there were nine people inside the building, one of whom was evacuated by the rescue service and the rest got out of the house on their own.

The social emergency service provides temporary accommodation for residents.

The rescue service received a report of a fire at four surfaces in the morning. The extinguishing work continued from six in the morning and was expected to continue until a long morning. The cause of ignition is not yet known.
