- It was a fully developed fire when we arrived at the scene, says Andrea Brändström, head of security protection at the rescue service in Västervik.

By 1 p.m., the fire had been extinguished and the rescue service was working to search for construction fires and other possible spread.

The fire started on the stove in the home in question and the home was seriously damaged by smoke.

- It will not be possible to return there tonight.

It is unclear how severe the injuries were.
