An employee was injured in a fire in a barn on the historic Schierensee estate in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde. The man had been taken to a clinic with burns to the hand and neck area, the fire department said.

Five horses, which were housed in the barn, could therefore be saved. The other buildings on the extensive grounds, which belong to the Günther Fielmann Foundation Schierensee, were not affected by the fire.
