In addition, the fire department was called six times this weekend. Five of the calls were related to minor incidences. There was, however, one major fire incident at the Matfugl poultry plant in Mosfellsbær in the early hours of Sunday morning. Firefighters were luckily able to put out the fire quickly and are now investigating the cause.
