The main facade of the old Copenhagen Stock Exchange, ravaged by fire on Tuesday, collapsed on Thursday afternoon, Danish emergency services said. “Unfortunately, the facade along Frederiksholms Kanal collapsed,” the services wrote on X, specifying that no injuries were reported and that the area had been evacuated.

The structure collapsed towards the interior of the building with a huge rumble, according to Danish media images. Containers had been placed along this facade to limit the risk of collapse, which the emergency services feared. The emergency services had announced at the beginning of the afternoon that a crane operation was to begin Friday at midday to evacuate notably parts of the roof which had collapsed.

The fire broke out for unknown reasons on Tuesday under the roof of the building around 7:30 a.m. local time and half of the building was burned. A must-see building in Copenhagen, the Old Stock Exchange, built in the 17th century and which would celebrate its 400th anniversary this year, also houses a vast collection of works of art, several hundred of which have been secured.
