Witnesses wanted – arsonist had raged in Linz business


It was arson! What was already suspected on Monday has now been proven after exploring the burnt-out “City Market” on Linzer Landstrasse. Now only the detonator has to be found.

At 2:36 a.m., the fire brigade and police were called to the “Stadsmarkt” near Schiller Park. The Floriani disciples had to break open the door to find out at the source of the fire.

The apartment above also had to be evacuated because of the heavy smoke coming in through a tilted window. One person was taken to hospital with suspected smoke inhalation, but no one was present in the store itself.

Detectives and a fire expert assessed the damage, which was limited to the sales area on the ground floor, and were able to rule out a technical defect and an indication of an “external source of ignition”. The amount of the damage is not yet clear, but exceeds the limit of 100,000 euros.

Now the police are looking for the arsonist and are asking for information from the permanent service of the police command of the city of Linz on 059133 45 3333.
