The fire was caused by a train.
– Fires have started in a number of places along the embankment, says Leif Staffansson, duty officer at the fire station.
The fire is north of Lönsboda, at Skinnemyra. 15-16 units from the fire service and the police have been called out to the site of the fires.
– A wide area is at risk. We must put out fires along several kilometres of railway embankment and a bit up into the woods. This calls for resources.
– So far no damage has been confirmed. Early on we had small fires in Lönsboda itself, but we have no information that they have spread to any buildings.
The emergency services are planning to keep the area under observation during the night.
