Firefighters rushed to reports of a fire in the basement of an apartment building in Bertrange on Sunday morning to discover a rubbish container on fire.

The incident was reported at about 11:20am, and it is believed the blaze was due to hot ash discarded in the container.

The fire was quickly extinguished; however, due to the thick smoke, the entire basement had to be completely ventilated.

Firefighters reported that at no time were residents in danger.
