Sent to the hospital
"There were smoky smoke in the apartment and they found two people, both of them came out of the house, but he did not survive, says Handecard. It seems life would not be saved.

On Wednesday night, crime technicians were sent to sites, but they can not enter the building without security.
The fires occurred at the 2nd floor of the house. There were some residents cut in nearby apartments.
Shut-down for a long time
In the end, Steinkjer firefighters had to ask help from Levanger's colleagues for a long time to fire the fire.
