The Stock Exchange was built as a commercial building by King Christian IV in the 1620s, and is used today as an office building.

The fire broke out on April 16, and the building's iconic tower fell in flames. The Dragon Tower is designed in the shape of four dragon tails wrapped around each other. It has three crowns at the top symbolizing the great kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

King Frederik of Denmark thanked the rescue workers.

– We woke up this morning to a sad scene, when the smoke above Copenhagen witnessed the devastating fire on the stock exchange. The king said in a statement last Tuesday that an important part of our architectural cultural heritage is burning.
