One in critical condition and eleven in hospital after two fires in Reykjavik
Last night two fires occurred in Reykjavik. One was in Mosfellsbær where eleven people were rescued and taken to hospital and the other in Grafarvogur where a man was rescued from a burning flat and is now in critical condition in hospital.
The fire in Grafarvogur occurred in an apartment building at Bláhamrar where a flat on the fourth floor was on fire. Numerous people were shut inside the building, amongst them a pregnant woman who waited on the balcony to be rescued. Damage to the building is considerable.
The home in Mosfellsbær burned down to the ground.
