Sparks still alive in burned down building

The Reykjavik Fire Department are still putting out sparks at the warehouse in Garðabær which burned down last week in one of Reykjavik's biggest blazes. 

The Metropolitan Police have therefore not been able to begin their investigation of what caused the fire. According to police, there is still a lot of heat in the ruins. 

The ruins at Miðhraun are now surrounded by fencing and under 24 hour surveillance.
