How the fire started is subject to much speculation here in Wiesbaden. The result as can seen here was devastating.
A few weeks ago we awoke to the continuous noise of fire engine sirens. It was just past 1 am and the the engines sounded like they were literally in front of our apartment building… they were!
Upon looking out of the window the reason for all the noise was clear. Not 500 meters from where we live, a 1,200 meter square wood storage building was completely engulfed in flames. 200 firefighters attended the blaze.
The storage building is was part of a family wood company that goes back 100 years. Luckily the company has the resources to rebuild.
