The fire protection test at Rigaer Straße 94 must be enforced by police force. Officials broke open the door of the partially occupied house in the morning. Previously, there had been an offer from the residents to let the fire safety inspector into the house without the police. The talks failed.
Rigaer Straße and the surrounding intersections are largely cordoned off. The police will be on duty on Thursday with up to 1,300 people. (The current developments in the news blog)
