On Wednesday afternoon, the Brussels Fire Brigade were called to a former police building on Place de Jamblinne de Meux in Schaerbeek that had often been occupied by squatters.

“The damaged building was empty and is regularly squatted," according to Walter Derieuw, a spokesperson for the Brussels Fire Brigade.

He added that there was burning garbage on the fourth floor, with fire spreading onto the roof of the building.

The fire's origin is yet to be determined.

As the building was unoccupied, there were no casualties.
