Emergency officials speculated that water from the centre’s sprinkler system spread over an area of about 500 square metres.

The sprinkler system broke down following a grease fire in a restaurant.

Some bus connections from Kamppi were suspended as a result of the water damage, however metro services resumed after a brief delay.

Helsinki regional transportation has advised that bus services to Espoo have been diverted to Ruoholahti, while local bus lines 14 and 18 have been diverted to Runeberginkatu.
