The fire in a roof structure of a warehouse has led in the night on tuesday to a large alarm of the fire departments in the area sonnefeld, weidhausen, rodental and even in the neighboring district kronach.
For reasons that are not yet entirely clear, the roof of the warehouse caught fire at around 10 p.M. On monday. Glowing embers in the intermediate ceiling of the construction sparked a fire in the roof area, which also affected the roof construction, which is made of glue beams.
Only through the quick intervention of the fire departments from the neighboring villages as well as from rodental, ebersdorf and mitwitz could the fire be quickly contained and a dangerous spread prevented.
Whether previously performed roofing work can be considered for the origin of the fire is still being determined. But experts from the coburg criminal investigation department have begun their investigations.
The damage to property is estimated by the police to be around 20.000 euro estimated. A final assessment can only be made once the investigations have been concluded. 130 firefighters were at the scene of the fire, as well as the THW and the rescue service.
