The first fire occurred on September 4th. The attic of a single family house caught fire. The property damage was rather limited, the house remained habitable. Finally, on September 25th, a farm building in the community burned down. The fire also spread to the house. The residents were able to leave the building on time. All animals – several cows, horses, foals and calves – were also brought to safety. Originally, it was assumed that there was a technical cause.
