"The report was sent to the emergency call center around 9:30 pm yesterday," says Andy Theler, spokesman for the Thurgau cantonal police. Although the fire brigade at the Weinland base in the canton of Zurich had been rapid on the spot, the house and barn were already on fire. "So the first thing to do was to prevent the fire from spreading to neighboring buildings."
Fortunately, people and animals were not harmed by the great fire. "The elderly couple who lived in the house managed to move to safety alone," says Theler. Property damage is likely to reach several hundred thousand francs to a sum of seven digits.
