Any help comes too late for three seniors: They die in a fire in a retirement home near Oldenburg. Another six residents are seriously injured.

Wardenburg – Three people died in a fire in a retirement home in Wardenburg near Oldenburg. They probably died from smoke gases, said a fire department spokesman on Sunday evening. Six other seniors were seriously injured. The remaining residents were rescued from their rooms.

“The civil courage of residents and neighbors was very great, they helped the nurses with the evacuation, that worked well,” said fire department spokesman Max Eilers. What exactly caused the fire is still unclear.

The fire was noticed because the fire alarms in the retirement and nursing home with 37 residents sounded the alarm and the fire brigade was alerted directly. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals.

The remaining residents were first checked medically by the emergency services in a dining room in a neighboring building of the old people’s home. Other accommodation options were sought for them for the night. “The home was full,” said the spokesman. dpa
