A building in one of the historic parts of Falun (the town in Sweden where Kostia and I spent the past year, for new readers) burned down the other day. It was big enough news to make The Local, which tends to be quite Stockholm-focused. A bar, a beauty salon, and some apartments were destroyed, and there was a lot of smoke damage to the surrounding neighborhood, but no one died.
