After the “fire went out”, the former farm went up in flames again

On Monday evening, a total of 13 fire brigades were involved in a fire in a former farm in Timelkam (Upper Austria). After several hours of extinguishing work and close monitoring, the fire was extinguished shortly after 2 a.m. The fire unexpectedly broke out again in the morning and four fire brigades are currently on site.

Shortly before eight o’clock in the evening on Monday, a fire broke out in an old farmhouse near Timelkam and three rooms were set on fire. The 47-year-old owner of the house was able to escape outside at the last minute and was taken to hospital with suspected smoke poisoning.

“Other embers checked”
“The fire was extinguished relatively quickly, after which we carefully checked for hours for remaining embers and finally extinguished the fire,” said a spokesperson for the Timelkam volunteer fire brigade.

A fire broke out again
Inexplicably, a fire broke out again on Tuesday morning. In the morning four fire brigades were active again. The low temperatures and freezing rain made extinguishing the fire even more difficult. Because there are no longer agricultural activities on the site, no animals have been in danger.
