Only months before its scheduled opening, a fire broke out at the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art’s new building in Oslo, designed by Renzo Piano.

Monday afternoon, a fire went up on the top floor, but firefighters had it under control by around 4pm. The museum reported via Twitter that no art or museum personnel had yet been moved into the building.

The new museum is still under construction and is due to house the privately-owned collection of modern and contemporary art, including works by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Matthew Barney, Olafur Eliasson and Jeff Koons. The opening was scheduled for September this year.
