One death confirmed in care home fire

Emergency services fighting a fire at a residential care home have confirmed that they have found the remains of at least one body in the ruins.

Around lunch time the police were able to start a technical investigation of the site, which is still partly burning. 

Three people are feared dead in the fire in Norrtälje, north of Stockholm. 
with one other resident missing since last week.

The fire started on Monday night.

Fire fighter spokesman Johan Winsnes says to news agency TT that they are discussing with the local municipality whether to simply tear down the rest of the still-smouldering building or fully put out the fire first.
