In a retirement home in Lower Saxony, the smoke detectors sound the alarm on Sunday evening, the fire brigade is quickly on site and can extinguish the fire. But for three residents of the facility, help comes too late.
The fire was noticed around 7:40 p.m. because the fire alarms in the retirement and nursing home with 37 residents sounded the alarm and the fire brigade was alerted directly. Firefighters quickly put out the fire that broke out in the back of the building. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals.
The remaining residents were first checked medically by the emergency services in a dining room in a neighboring building of the old people's home. Other accommodation options were sought for them for the night. "The home was full," said the spokesman.
