Burning chemicals

Danger over at Sandviken fire

Authorities have withdrawn their over-night order for people to remain in doors for nearby residents - after a fire broke out in a chemical bath of the Sandviken metal factory - near the city of Gävle north of Stockholm.

Fire fighters say the fire is under control and that the smoke still coming out of the plant is no longer dangerous.
