It’s a rare occurrence when I see a major street blocked off with emergency vehicles in Oslo right near my flat. Apparently there was a fire in an apartment building near where I lived.

There wasn’t a fire visible when I came across the scene, but I could still smell the smoke. Here are some pictures I took.
