 A warehouse for Icewear and the Geymslur.is storages in Garðabær caught fire this morning. The smoke is visible from many parts of the capital. 

The fire was accompanied by massive smoke that rose to the skies with poisonous gases hitting both Hafnarfjörður and Álftanes. 

Everyone got out safe from the fire and firefighters have been battling the flames since the fire started at around 8 am. 

Firefighters are afraid that the ceiling of the building is about to cave in.
