Four young people have been detained on suspicion of setting the big fire in Hässleholm in August. They are suspected of arson on probable cause, according to Hässleholm’s District Court.

The suspects - three men and one woman - are aged between 15-21 years old. All four deny committing the crime.

Probable cause is the higher degree of suspicion of a crime.

A fifth young person was suspected but has now been released.

The fire started in an empty warehouse by the railway, on the evening of August 14th. The fire caused major damage to contact lines, signal systems and tracks.

All train services were stopped until August 20th.
