“The fire has now been extinguished and all employees have been evacuated. No reported injuries,” mining company Boliden said, on its website.
The company did not say what caused the fire.
A total of 166 people were in the mine when the fire broke out, according to Sweden’s Aftonbladet newspaper.
The incident comes one month after a truck caught fire 3,000 feet below the ground in Sweden’s Kiruna mine. More than 250 people were in the pit when the fire began, 10 of whom were briefly trapped at a 4,400-feet depth.
Nearly 30 people were rushed to a hospital when a mine fire broke out in Kiruna last year.
