Two firemen have been hurt while fighting a fire in the roof section of a building on Skt. Jakobs Plads in the Østerbro quarter of Copenhagen.

Both men were reported to be slightly injured when roofing tiles, part of the building’s chimney and embers fell to street level. A fire engine cabin and a hydraulic lift as well as several other vehicles were damaged by cascading debris.

Police evacuated people in surrounding buildings.

“A couple of officers came and told us we had five minutes to collect our things,” says politiken.dk journalist Niels Holst who lives in an adjacent building.

The fire is not expected to be fully extinguished until later tonight.
