A parasol went up in smoke outside Sot & Sabrura on Torvet on Monday.

The general manager of the restaurant, Gurjeet Singh, says that he was at home when he was called that there was a fire in the outdoor dining area. He explains that it was a mistake that started the fire.

– An error

– We have a fuse that goes off every year which is connected to the heating elements on the parasols, he says.

On Monday, the fuse was supposed to be turned on, but there was one important problem.

– This time the parasol was down, because a customer who had sat there earlier wanted some sun. Thus, a mistake has occurred, he says.

– Fortunately, there was no damage other than the material, he adds – and emphasizes that no one was sitting on the table by the parasol that caught fire.

Now the outdoor dining area will be cleaned so it will be ready for 17 May.

– It’s a full house, so it gets really busy.

Got more messages

The fire service received a report about the incident at 14:02.

– I don’t know what has happened, says Marius Sandnes at the 110 center in Mid-Norway.

When they arrived, the fire should have been extinguished.

– We checked and made sure that the fire was completely extinguished, says Sandnes.

Several people are said to have reported the incident to the fire service.

– It gets a bit like that when it’s in the middle of the cityscape, says Sandnes, who reports that they have the situation under control.

Tore Ingar Moan happened to be sitting on Torvet when it started to burn.

– I just saw that it suddenly burst into flames. I also saw that the fire brigade came, but by then the fire was already out, says Moan.
