A fire broke out in a car repair shop in an industrial area in Schwerin-Süd on Wednesday afternoon. Two people were injured. At the same time there was a power outage in the east of the city. But this has nothing to do with fire.
According to the fire department, the fire broke out in the garage at Rudolf-Diesel-Strauss in Swerin in the afternoon. A thick haze spread across the afternoon sky. In the evening the fire was brought under control, but it was further extinguished. According to police, ten people were able to get to safety by the time the fire brigade arrived. 2 people who inhaled the smoke were taken to hospital. The cause of the fire is not yet clear. 65 firefighters and four volunteers from the professional fire brigade are involved in the firefighting operation.
Not related to the power outage in the east of the city
Also in the afternoon there was a power outage in some parts of Mueßer Holz and Zippendorf districts. About 100 families were affected. It is thought that there may have been a connection to the power outage as the fire broke out not far from the power station owned by Swerin Public Utilities Company. However, Swerin municipal applications do not confirm this, but rather it is a different electrical phase.
