BackgroundA warehouse in Halmstad harbour containing chemicals caught fire on Friday evening at 10.18. The smoke from the fire kept moving mostly to the sea. The fire department decided not to put the fire out because of several reasons, but changed their plans when the risk of the winds turning to the shore was increased.
