Thuringia: Evacuations after finding another gas bottle

Bothenheilingen (dpa/th) - After the major fire and a gas explosion in the small community of Bothenheilingen in the Unstrut-Hainich district, the danger has not yet been banned on Tuesday. Because another gas bottle was found in a residential building, around 30 people had to leave their homes on Monday evening, the police said on Tuesday morning. A gas bottle had already exploded in the house the day before. "The gas bottle is cooled and experts advise on how best to secure it," said a spokeswoman on request. In addition, the fire brigade is still busy extinguishing some embers. The actual fires are under control.

The fire and the explosion caused massive destruction in the 450-strong community on Monday. First, a four-sided courtyard, which also housed a carpentry shop, burned down to the foundations. Then an apartment building about 200 meters away went up in flames after a gas cylinder exploded.

The police could not provide specific information on the number of injuries and the amount of damage on Tuesday morning. Some of the approximately 200 firefighters struggled with circulatory problems because of the intense heat. In the evening, the investigators had assumed damage of several million euros. On Tuesday, experts wanted to get to the bottom of the cause.
