Warehouse Fire | Sweden, August 2022

On August 8th, 2022, a fire broke out in a warehouse, affecting the accessories wholesaler Holiday Fritid, among others..

In the early morning, passers-by noticed smoke coming from the building and called the emergency services. Upon the fire and rescue services’ arrival, smoke was coming from the roof along the building, and the progress of the fire indicated potential for both flashover and back-draft.

The fire was fought for over 24 hours, and several stations were called in, resulting in the use of many vehicles and resources.

Several Cobras were used to strengthen the boundary line at the connected warehouse.

Major components of the building were totally destroyed in the fire, and what remains today are only ruins. Some of it is still standing, but the parts that stood next to it will have to be demolished and rebuilt.

Holiday Fritid was housed in the building and had a large part of its stock saved during the operation. This was because the fire and rescue services were able to maintain a boundary line with Cobra. The goods were taken care of and transported to a new address next door to Cobra provider Cold Cut Systems. Here, business is back on its feet after the critical incident that affected not only Holiday Fritid but all the companies based on the site.

“As I understand it, it was thanks to the boundary line that we have a business today. What was left in the remaining building and in a container outside made up a large part of our stock today. With the hassle of ordering new today, we are very grateful that it was possible to save as much as it did.”
