 The Reykjavik Fire Department have finally been able to gain control over the fire blazing in Garðabær where a storage space centre and Icewear caught fire. Pollution from the fire has mostly disappeared. 

Children were kept indoors at schools in Álftanes and Hafnarfjörður today and people with sensitive lungs should also refrain from being outside near the area. 

The storage spaces are part of the Geymslur.is company where people can hire storage for their belongings. 

The owner of the building, which is located at Miðhraun 4 in Garðabær, is the Reginn real estate company. They believe that the building is entirely destroyed.
