A fire broke out in a large bakery in northern Thuringia on Sunday evening. The building in Bleicherode is on fire, said a spokesman for the state operations center of the German Press Agency.
Several fire departments are on site. The district spoke of around 150 emergency services.
According to the police, no work was being done in the bakery at the time of the fire. At first there were no injuries. It was unclear late in the evening why the big fire in the commercial area came about.
The police called on residents to close doors and windows. This warning was also issued for the neighboring district of Eichsfeld. A road to Interstate 38 has been closed.
The county posted pictures and videos on Facebook that showed huge plumes of black smoke over the building and flames. “It can be assumed that the fire will burn for several hours,” it said late in the evening.
