The guests at an exclusive hotel in central Stockholm were forced to leave on Tuesday afternoon, with six fire engines currently fighting the blaze in the adjacent building.


Six fire engines were sent to tackle the blaze at the building adjoining the hotel Diplomat in Stockholm. The fire was reportedly so extensive that traffic in the immediate area was stopped soon after the fire broke out at 4.15pm.

“It is a fully developed fire on the roof of the building,” said Joakim Tapper of the Stockholm fire department to the Aftonbladet newspaper.

The smoke allegedly swept throughout the hotel building, which was subsequently evacuated.

A dozen emergency vehicles were at the scene including three ambulances, however no one has so far been reported injured, according to the paper.

The luxury hotel is on Strandvägen in central Stockholm, and is popular with international guests.
