The fire was relatively small and started in a large amount of polystyrene insulation materials, said Fire Chief Johnny Breivik. Firefighters normal tactic with an aggressive interior attack was impossible due to an overfilled warehouse and all smoke diving attempts were rendered impossible.

Therefore the The Fire Department brought in its airboat to use the large fan to clear smoke from the building, said Johnny Breivik.
