Darmstadt (ots) – On Thursday (April 23, 2020) at around 4.30 p.m., the police was informed by the rescue control center about a fire in the allotment garden “An der Nachtweide”. When the emergency services arrived, a fire was discovered that had spread over two plots on an area of approximately 120 square meters. A garden shed on a parcel had already completely burned down. Stored items were burning on the other property. The fire department had the fire under control quickly and was able to prevent further damage and the spread of the flames to other plots. The fire was extinguished at around 5:30 p.m. During the extinguishing and post-extinguishing work, the Pfnorrstrasse in the direction of Pallaswiesenstrasse was completely closed. According to previous findings, no one was injured in the fire. What ultimately triggered the fire is still unclear. No reliable information can yet be given on the amount of damage either. Commissioner 10 has taken over the further investigation.
