Several evacuated in house fire

The police were notified of a fire in a detached house in Verdal at 00.55 on Sunday night. The message was that there was a fire inside the house and that the fire was creeping up the floors. The house is now overheated.

– We work on site and hope we save the neighboring houses, says operations manager in Trøndelag police district, Wenche Johnsen to TV 2.

A family of five has evacuated themselves.

– What is good is that no one in the family is injured. Everyone got out and we are very happy about that, says Johnsen.

There is a lot of wind on the site, which meant that the house quickly caught fire. The police are working to evacuate one of the neighboring houses, and are continuously considering whether to evacuate more houses.

At 01.44, the fire brigade in Namdal informs that there is no longer a danger of spreading to other houses.
