Hesse: Arson series: Again forest fire in the district of Offenbach

Hainburg/Offenbach (dpa/lhe) - There was another forest fire near the Hessian town of Hainburg (Offenbach district). Investigators attribute Thursday evening's fire to a series of arson attacks in the area, a police spokesman in Offenbach said on Friday. This time around 2500 square meters of forest were on fire, it said. Two burns were found, which suggests that the fire was deliberately set.

A total of more than two dozen cases of arson are currently being investigated. So far, however, there are no suspects. The size and remoteness of the forest, as well as possible tracks destroyed by the fire, make the investigation particularly difficult, according to the police spokesman. It was said that 45 firefighters were deployed to put out the fire on Thursday. The Red Cross was reportedly on site due to the hot weather to supply the emergency services. A police helicopter therefore assisted in the search for the fire nest.
