Bremerhaven (dpa / lni) - A fire broke out in a wood processing plant in the fishing port of Bremerhaven on Tuesday night.

As the fire brigade announced, a planing machine caught fire in a hall.

Employees were not injured, they were able to get to safety before the emergency services arrived.

The company's automatic extinguishing system had already partially contained the fire, and the fire fighters took over the further extinguishing work.

Why the machine caught fire was initially unclear.
