Hall fire at waste disposal company

Large-scale operation in Cologne: hall fire on the premises of a waste disposal company

The automatic fire alarm system of a waste disposal company alerted the Cologne fire department. The task forces already recognized a pillar of smoke from the reported object on their way to the scene. Another firefighting platoon was immediately alerted to the location.

A fire incident in a hall with different recycling materials was confirmed. Immediate firefighting measures were initiated, and the limited water supply in the industrial park presented a challenge to the emergency services. Fire and rescue services were in action with 102 emergency personnel and 25 vehicles. No one was injured during this operation.
