    Default Fire at The Resistance Museum (Copenhagen, Denmark)

    In the early morning of April 28th., around 2 a.m. a fire broke out in the cafÚ at The Museum of Danish Resistance, situated in the centre of Copenhagen. No persons have been injured, but the fire quickly spread to the building, which houses the exhibition. The Museum exhibits objects related to the Danish Resistance Movement during the German occupation of Denmark in World War II.
    The buildings are severely damaged, but according to present information, firefighters have been able to save almost all artefacts, and the museum archives are secure. Museum staff has been at the site during the whole morning, and personnel from the Preservation Department at The National Museum of Denmark is ready to examine and care for the rescued artefacts.
    The full extend of the damages are not yet known, neither is the cause of the fire.

    Really bad; but at least the archives and almost all exhibits have been saved. However, as with all fires, in my book the most important aspect is that nobody was injured or killed.

    Not to be too flippant, but it is probably not the first time in their existence that these artifacts have seen fire & smoke!!
    Glad they survived this time as well ........
