The fire swept through the roof of the “Uncle Toms Hoti” station in the Zillendorf area of the city after it first erupted in a shop next to the station, according to a spokesman for the city fire brigade.
The spokesman said that perhaps a number of nearby homes should be evacuated.
The emergency services stated that they expected efforts to control the fire during the night, noting that at least 90 firefighters were at the site of the accident.
