Bottrop (dpa / lnw) - Commercial waste was burned in a warehouse in Bottrop.

The fire brigade announced on Thursday morning that there was no damage to the hall itself on Thursday night.

The approximately 150 cubic meter mountain of rubbish caught fire for an unexplained cause.

Since the source of the fire was inside the mountain of rubbish, the emergency services had to first pull the garbage apart.

Then they put out the fire.

According to the fire brigade, deep-lying embers made it difficult to extinguish the fire, which lasted several hours.
