The engines were not able to get close to a burning apartment as many cars were parked illegally in the Schosshalden area of the city.

The fire had broken out on the second floor. The home owner was able to escape safely, but the damage is estimated at tens of thousands of francs. It may have been less serious with the help of the pumps.
