A major fire broke out at the old VR railway warehouses in central Helsinki on Friday evening. A column of heavy black smoke from the blaze was visible throughout the downtown area of the city.The fire was at the same site as a melee on May Day night in which protesters set a large fire and pelted police and fire-fighters with bottles, rocks and other projectiles.
Demolition of the nineteenth-century brick buildings was to begin on Monday morning to make way for a new music hall.
A polícia suspeita de fogo posto.
