On Thursday evening, a fire broke out in an apartment building on Merheimerstraße near Werkstattstraße in Nippes. The Cologne fire brigade received an emergency call at 9:40 p.m.
An attic apartment on the fourth floor was completely burned out, said emergency services on site. An elderly man was taken to hospital seriously injured.
How the fire came about is still unclear. The other residents of the house were able to stay in their apartments during the extinguishing work. Seven people were examined by an emergency doctor but did not need any further treatment.
Because of the extinguishing work, there were traffic disruptions, Merheimerstrasse was partially closed until late at night. (kra, ok)
