66117 Saarbrücken, Hohenzollernstraße (ots) - On Sunday afternoon, around 13 p.m., there was a fire on a balcony on the 4th floor of a four-storey residential building, which is attached on both sides. The fire broke out as embers from a charcoal grill fell between the wooden planks of the flooring. In the absence of the residents, the charcoal ignited again and started the fire.
The property and the balcony were heavily damaged. The apartment itself and other parts of the building were spared due to the rapid deployment of the professional fire brigade and volunteer fire brigade. People were not harmed either.
The police were on site with two commands. The professional fire brigade with a fire truck and four vehicles - the FFW-Alt with a total of 30 emergency services.
The Hohhenzollernstrasse was closed in this area for about 1 hour. However, since there was only a small amount of traffic, there was only minimal impairment of traffic.
