A day later, more information is coming out about the causes of the fire with serious consequences in one of the buildings in the complex in the area of the former park in Tirana.
For News 24, the Director of the Fire Department in Tirana, Shkëlqim Goxhaj, said that from the footage and preliminary verifications, it was concluded that the fire started from an electrical spark from the air conditioner in the attic and then spread.
"From the views and from all the expertise we have done today, we think that the fire started in this part of the building where the attic is also located. I think the fire started from the air conditioners, we also have video footage of the moment the fire started. Today we were also with the leaders of Police Station No. 2, but we will also watch other videos from nearby businesses, to make sure of the source of the fire. "90 percent of the fire has fallen on the floor where the attic is located, on the floor of the burned apartment," explained Goxhaj.
He said that the building was equipped with all fire protection measures, such as hydrants and pumps.
