A fire affected the old Copenhagen Stock Exchange (Denmark) this Tuesday, one of the buildings most emblematic of the Danish capital, and has enveloped its spire that collapsed on the roof. So far, no injuries have been reported in a fire of as yet undetermined origin.

A live video from local media has shown how several people have taken great pictures of the building to save them from the flames. The historic building, whose spire was shaped like the tails of four intertwined dragons, was undergoing renovation work when the fire broke out.

The Dutch Renaissance-style building no longer houses the Danish Stock Exchange, but instead serves as headquarters of the Danish Chamber of Commerce. “We find a terrible spectacle. The stock market is on fire,” the Chamber of Commerce wrote in X.

Copenhagen Police have asked people to avoid driving inside the city. Emergency services and firefighters are working to try to put out the fire while police have cordoned off a large area next to the building, located in a central area. Several wings of Christiansborg Castle, seat of Parliament, which is located near the burning building, They have been evacuated as a precaution.
