More news and another picture from the Winterthur fire I mentioned yesterday. Thanks to
World Radio Switzerland
for the report -
Winterthur fire costs millions in damage
A fire in Winterthur’s historic old town early this morning caused millions of francs in damage.
Spokesman Marcel Strebel from Zurich cantonal police said an old town home caught fire at about 2:30 a.m.
The fire department responded three minutes later but the blaze had already spread to two other homes.
No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is unknown.
The town’s old quarter has buildings dating from the 17th century, but it doesn’t yet appear those burned this morning were listed in the historic buildings register.
