After just a few minutes of work with the cutting extinguisher the fire subsided in intensity. At midnight the fire was under control and the post extinguishing began. What caused the fire on the roof is currently unclear. The people who were in the house when the fire started managed to escape unharmed before the fire fighters arrived.
