HELSINKI, March 27 (Xinhua) -- A large fire broke out early Monday morning at a waste terminal in Vantaa, southern Finland, burning down the warehouse completely and causing traffic problems, Finnish news agency STT reported.
The warehouse belongs to Lassila & Tikanoja, a major environmental management company in Finland.
There were no reported casualties, but the warehouse and materials inside were completely destroyed.
According to the local rescue department, the fire would last until Monday afternoon, as there were a lot of combustible materials, such as wood, paper, cardboard and energy waste, in the warehouse.
The clouds of smoke from the fire caused problems with visibility on nearby highways and led to the rerouting of some public transport buses. Police estimated that traffic backups would continue into the afternoon.
The company was not able to evaluate the extent of damage at the moment, said STT.
