The underpass under the Brno main station is completely closed after Saturday’s fire, said Vladimíra Navrátilová, spokeswoman for Brno Communications. The electrical installation is damaged to such an extent that it is impossible to light the entire tunnel. Initially, after the fire, the firemen said that only the part under the Letmo department store, where three sales stands were on fire, would be closed. According to Navrátilová, the length of the closure cannot be estimated now.

People who are used to walking in the subway from Vaňkova and the Tesco department store, to the trains or trams and to the historic center, have to walk on the surface under the railway viaduct. According to Navrátilová, there are still workers on site who are determining the exact extent of the damage and cleaning up the consequences of the fire. Brno Communications are the manager of the underpass. The owner is the city, which will decide what will happen in the subway in the coming days.

The fire engulfed the stalls in the early hours of the morning on Saturday, and firefighters brought it under control after 20 minutes. Due to the time of day, the fire escaped without serious consequences. Three bystanders and one firefighter inhaled the fumes. The cause of the fire was a fault with an electrical appliance. Experts have preliminarily estimated the damage at two million crowns.
