Denmark historic monument & museum fire

Copenhagen stock exchange, one of Denmark’s most famous buildings, with many valuable paintings, was destroyed by fire on 16th April. The 400-year old building is around half destroyed and the iconic spire collapsed in the fire. Some of the paintings and other artwork in the building were rescued by fire services and passers-by during the fire. The cause of the fire is unknown, but the building was undergoing renovation and the fire seems to have started underneath the copper-covered roof (similarly to the Paris Notre Dame fire 2019). Officials have said that the building will be rebuilt.
