Tom Cruise’s team members who are currently working on filming the new Mission Impossible movie in Norway were among the volunteers who helped out when a large fire broke out in a residential complex in Åndalsnes.

One person is now charged in connection with the fire.

The information was confirmed by the attorney for the police Knut Meek Corneliussen to newspaper VG on Thursday night.

“The person is charged with violation of the Fire and Explosion Act,” he said.

A total of 34 people were evacuated and 37 became homeless after the large fire in a residential complex in Åndalsnes on Thursday morning.

Two people suffered from smoke inhalation or smaller burn wounds, the police in Møre og Romsdal stated.

Film crew helped out

Tom Cruise and a large film crew who are filming Mission Impossible: 7, have been in the area for quite some time.

Their base is right next to where the fire broke out, and VG received confirmation that several members of the film crew participated in the rescue work.

“They are located on the other side of the train tracks, and they stormed in and made an effort in the initial phase. We are very grateful for that,” sheriff Roar Mordal Hilde in Rauma and Vestnes told VG.

Rauma municipality has set up a psychosocial team that will follow up those affected.

The fire led to delays in train traffic between Dombås and Åndalsnes on the Rauma line.

One house burnt down and another was severely damaged after the fire, photos from Åndalsnes showed on Thursday afternoon.
