Waldstetten (dpa / lsw) - The fire in a car repair shop in Waldstetten caused damage of at least half a million euros.

No one was injured, the police said on Friday.

When the fire broke out, there was no one in the workshop.

A neighbor discovered and reported the fire on Thursday evening.

The fire destroyed the entire workshop, in which several vehicles were also parked.

The adjoining sales room was spared from the fire.

There was nevertheless considerable damage from smoke and soot.

The cause of fire was unclear for the moment.

The fire investigators could not enter the building immediately because of the intense heat.

There was also a risk of collapse.
