A fire broke out on Monday evening in a warehouse in north Brussels.

According to local police, about ten homes have been evacuated, and the situation is now under control.

The fire took place around 7:20 p.m. on the roof of a shed located at the corner of the Aerschot street and Brabant street in Schaerbeek. The building was undergoing renovation, said the police.

The fire took very quickly and caused a thick cloud of smoke visible several kilometers away.

A spokesman for the Brussels fire service said earlier that no injuries have been reported.

Brussels public prosecutor's office is currently investigating the case.
