On Thursday morning, a fire broke out at the Port of Aarhus. The fire is self-ignited in some scrap wood in Norreco on Oceanvej, but has now been brought under control, said Østjyllands Fire Department. The fire does not represent a great danger, as it occurred at a landfill site.

"There was a fire in a waste storage facility, which consists of some tree. There is a stack of a few hundred square meters and four meters in height, so that is what is burning now," said Incident Commander Christian Bandholm.

Because of the fire Østhavnsvej has been blocked and traffic has been diverted. The smoke is not directly toxic, however, people in the area are encouraged to go inside and close doors and windows.

Norreco deals with environmentally sound treatment of soil and debris and receives all kinds of waste, including concrete, bricks, asphalt and combustible waste such as wood.

The wind has recently reversed, so the smoke from the fire now bother parts of the container terminal, where Mogens Maersk is located and the cruise pier for Costa Favolosa which docked at approximately 9:30 today. The cruise ship expected to leave the port again at 19:00.
