17.11.2017 - The extinguishing work was particularly difficult because the roof of the greenhouse consisted of quickly flammable polyurethane, a synthetic resin. The fire brigade stayed on site even after the fire-fighting operations were complete, to ensure good ventilation and to prevent the fire from flaring up again.
