Crivitz (dpa / mv) - Five days after a fire with a dead person in an apartment building in Crivitz (Ludwigslust-Parchim), the identity of the victim and the cause of the fire are largely determined.

As a police spokesman said on Monday, the 57-year-old tenant who lived alone in the apartment on fire died.

Forensic medical examinations would have shown that.

It is also clear that the fire was caused by negligent use of open fire in this apartment.

A fire appraiser found that.

Only the type of open fire has not yet been finally clarified.

A technical cause was excluded.

According to the investigations so far, there is no evidence that someone was in the apartment.

So nobody could be held responsible for the fire anymore.

The fire broke out in the top apartment on Wednesday evening and had hit the roof structure.

All residents and residents of the neighboring house had to flee.

After the extinguishing, firefighters found the body.

Two comrades were slightly injured during the operation.

The people from the neighboring house were able to return, the fire house is uninhabitable.

The damage was estimated at at least 180,000 euros.
