On the Spanish island of Mallorca, the police arrested 13 Germans on Saturday. The vacationers had flicked cigarette butts onto a roof below them. This started to burn. Now it turns out: Among the suspects are also members of the Münster fire brigade.

According to preliminary information from the city of Münster, members of the voluntary fire brigade and an employee of the administration are among the 13 tourists who are in custody in Palma, Mallorca, for suspected arson. The 13-strong bowling club tour group includes six members of fire engines from two districts, as the head of the Münster fire brigade announced on Monday.

The city speaks cautiously of still unsecured findings. The city first wants to wait for the investigations of the Spanish authorities, said Wolfgang Heuer, the city’s head of public order, according to the announcement.

The tourists have been in custody since Saturday. They face several years in prison. The responsible investigating judge did not allow release on bail. The Germans, aged between 24 and 29, are accused of throwing cigarette butts on the terrace roof of a restaurant in the immediate vicinity of the Ballermann, shortly after arriving on the island at a party on two balconies of their hotel rooms on Friday afternoon and also pouring alcohol on it. The reed roof caught fire.

A neighbor of the restaurant describes the incident to the “Mallorca Zeitung”. Accordingly, the men filmed the fire they allegedly started with their cell phones and roared. Only when the fire spread further did they leave the balcony in panic. “This is just the beginning,” fears another resident. “Because next month all Spaniards are coming here on a graduation trip.”

According to the German landlady Alice Klotz, the damage was around 150,000 euros. Two people were slightly injured, as the “Mallorca Zeitung” wrote.

The 13 suspected arsonists face longer prison sentences. If they are charged and found guilty of negligent arson, vacationers on the Spanish Mediterranean island can be sentenced to between one and three years’ imprisonment, as Spanish lawyers said on Monday at the request of the German Press Agency.

In the case of intentional arson, prison sentences of up to six years are provided, it said. And if the court is of the opinion that human lives have been endangered, the verdict could also be much sharper.
