On 19 of august 2023, a fire broke out in a shelter for refugees in the early hours of the morning. Shortly before 3 a.m., the Danube-Iller Integrated Control Center received notification of a triggered fire alarm system in a building in Mühlstraße. A resident of the property had been woken up by a smoke detector and thus became aware of a fire at the main entrance of the building. Here he discovered a burning stroller parked next to the front door. The stroller was immediately taken out of the building by the resident. By the time the fire brigade arrived, the stroller had already been extinguished by the resident. No people were injured in the fire, the property damage amounts to around 150 euros, and there was no damage to the building. Since the cause of the fire has not yet been clarified, witnesses are asked to report information to the Burgau police station. There have already been a number of arsons in Burgau in recent weeks. As a counselling centre for victims of right-wing violence, we perceive the selection of accommodation for refugees as the target of another arson attack and place this attempt in the currently increasingly observable nationwide right-wing mobilisation against refugees and their accommodation.
