False alarm for Reykjavik Fire Department as Finnish man lights sauna

The Reykjavik Fire Department was called out to a residence in central Reykjavik yesterday as smoke had appeared from a garden shed.

It turned out that a Finnish gentleman had been testing out his newly built sauna. 

There was no fire hazard so the firemen left.
