Major operation in Tyrol – Quick fire brigade prevents inferno at sawmill


Thanks to the quick intervention of the fire brigade, an inferno was probably prevented on Tuesday evening in Hopfgarten in the Tyrolean lowlands: a fire broke out on the roof of a sawmill near a wooden structure. More than 120 emergency services responded.

A neighbor raised the alarm around 7 p.m. He reported enormous smoke development on the roof of the sawmill in Hopfgarten. ““The fire probably started near a wooden structure,” police said. This contained a motor for the conveyor belt system, which was not in operation at the time.

Fire quickly under control
In total, about 120 firefighters from the city and surrounding region arrived and began extinguishing the fire. Fortunately, the emergency services were able to quickly get the fire under control and prevent it from getting worse.

Photovoltaic system also damaged
It was also a big blessing in disguise that no one was hurt. However, extensive damage was caused to the roof of the sawmill and parts of the photovoltaic system were also damaged. The operation was completed around 10 p.m. The investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
