Large fire in western Gothenburg


Linda Genborg 2012-04-13

A large fire raged in Påvelundshallen in western Gothenburg on Thursday evening. The fire started in the tennis and badminton centre’s sauna and then spread through the building. 

40 fire fighters were involved in trying to extinguish the fire that caused great damage to the building. A Montessori school is leasing the part of the building that is the most damaged. The school now has to find new locales for around 80 students before Monday.

Maud Serdwall, who has been a teacher at the school for 12 years, went to the school last night to see if she could save any material. She told Göteborgs-Posten:

“When I arrived there were flames coming out of the ceiling and the school was completely on fire. It looked really scary.”

No people were injured in the fire. The police have launched an investigation into arson.
