Additional information from our man in Krakow:

Just to confirm: the fire broke out at the Kraków Municipal Archive and not the Kraków State Archive. As a matter of fact, the Municipal Archive holds metrical records but they have not been affected by the fire. The destruction and damage covered other types of documents, such as building permits, architectural documentation, etc. The metrical records are intact.
