“On the evening of 15 September, a major fire broke out at the address Lagsand 34 in Hvide Sande, which the Central and West Jutland Police have since been working to find the cause of,” the force stated on its website.

Central and West Jutland Police Knud Lauridsen said: “The fire investigations have now been completed, but it has unfortunately not been possible to come to any final conclusion on how the fire originated.”

The force added that there is nothing immediately in connection with the investigations of the fire or the interrogations in the investigation that indicate that the fire was started deliberately.

The fire site has been released to Atlantic Sapphire.

In a market announcement, Atlantic Sapphire said it will “continue to work its future plans for Atlantic Sapphire Denmark”.
