This next video by Bild shows the two who are trapped on the roof jump down into the firefighters’ cushion:
Bild report 16 wounded, two of them critically, and one dead. 34 people lost their home.
When police searched the house on Friday afternoon with a thermographic camera, they found what they initially thought was a male body. But the autopsy later revealed that it was a female body. Police also found several dead pets in the house.
Police confirm that the arsonist is a 32-year-old Syrian, a resident of that very house, and that he will be charged with arson and murder.
