World-famous Swedish ice hotel is ordered to install smoke alarms

A world-famous hotel in Sweden has been ordered to install fire alarms despite being constructed entirely of ice.

ICEHOTEL, which is located in the north Swedish town of Jukkasjarvi, is rebuilt every winter after it melts in the spring. It is constructed purely from ice including all furniture and appliances.

Despite this the owners of the hotel were told they could not continue construction of the building until at least one detector was installed on the premises. [...]

Bizarrely soon after the alarm was installed it was triggered, reportedly by a guest smoking in a cleaning closet.
