Saarbrücken-Burbach (ots) - On late Sunday evening, June 21.06.2020, 22, around 00:1 p.m., the police reached an emergency call that a car would burn on BAB 1, heading towards Saarbrücken, just before the Neuhaus rest area. The officers deployed were able to find the reported facts correctly. Shortly before the rest area, a car was on fire on the hard shoulder. As it turned out, the car was previously occupied by three occupants, all of whom were able to get out of the vehicle in good time and uninjured, in the direction of Saarbrücken before the vehicle probably started to burn due to a technical defect. For the duration of the extinguishing and recovery work, as well as the cleaning of the carriageway, the BAB 3 direction Saarbrücken had to be partially blocked in this area for approx. XNUMX hours. The salvage work was difficult because parts of the vehicle had melted into the road surface due to the heat of the fire. However, there were only minor traffic problems. A total of three commandos from the Burbach and Völklingen police inspections, as well as fire engines from the Heusweiler, Holz and Wahlschied volunteer fire brigades were deployed.
