Darmstadt (dpa / lhe) - Because of a burning bed in the hallway, the fire brigade cleared the upper floors of a high-rise building in Darmstadt. A resident inhaled smoke from the fire late Thursday evening and was treated by rescue workers, police said. The bed was parked on the seventh floor of the house by a tenant because of rearranging work in the apartment. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, police said.
Negligent or even intentional arson is currently not excluded. As a precaution, the residents were brought outside from the seventh floor upwards. According to the police, they were able to return to their homes after the operation.
