On the evening of 23rd of october 2022, residents of a refugee shelter reported a fire in the basement of the house. The notified fire brigade was able to extinguish the fire quickly and prevent it from spreading further. All of the dozen or so residents were able to flee the building in time. However, three of the residents were injured when they took the windows outside to safety. Due to the smoke, the house is currently uninhabitable and the residents had to be accommodated elsewhere. As the Kripo Memmingen determined, the fire was deliberately set by lighting clothing in the basement. This could also have led to the death of the residents. The police are now investigating on suspicion of aggravated arson and attempted murder.
