Accident near Oldenburg: three people die in a fire in a nursing home

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.

Three people died in a fire in a retirement home in Wardenburg near Oldenburg. They probably died from smoke gases, said a fire department spokesman. Ten other seniors were injured, some seriously. The remaining residents were rescued from their rooms. "The civil courage of residents and neighbors was very great, they helped the nurses with the evacuation, that worked well," said fire department spokesman Max Eilers. What exactly caused the fire is still unclear.

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.
