Two people were slightly injured in the fire in an apartment building in Freiburg. In addition, the fire on Saturday night caused an estimated damage of around 100,000 euros, according to the police. The cause of fire was unclear for the moment. Officers are investigating arson.
According to the information, the fire spread from the entrance area of an empty shop through the windows to the facade area of the apartment building. Smoke therefore moved through the hallways to all floors. Firefighters evacuated the building and put out the fire. Paramedics treated two women with minor injuries. They were suspected of smoke inhalation, police said. One of the women was taken to a hospital for further treatment. The other residents were able to return to their apartments after the extinguishing work was completed.
