On wednesday evening, the roof truss of a barn was completely destroyed by fire. What finally triggered the fire is not known at the moment. In the meantime, the wurzburg criminal investigation department has taken over further investigations.
In the johann-eck-strabe, the owners of the directly adjacent residential building had a fire at about 18.45 o’clock a loud blow perceived. When they looked outside, they saw sparks flying from the barn. The roof structure was ablaze just a short time later. In the aftermath, a large contingent of several fire brigades with almost 100 men arrived, who had the fire under control relatively quickly. Nevertheless, it could not be prevented that the roof truss of the barn burned down completely together with a photovoltaic system mounted on it.
In the barn there were numerous machines.
The extent to which these machines were damaged by the fire has not yet been determined.
The town center of hopferstadt is currently (21.30 o’clock) still blocked. In the meantime, officers of the criminal investigation department of the wurzburg police have begun their investigations on the spot. It is not yet possible to say whether the fire was caused by a storm that was raging at the time.
