After the major fire in Mosbach on Monday afternoon, the fire department is still on site to extinguish the fire. It could be that there are still isolated pockets of embers, a police spokesman said on Tuesday. There is still no information about the extent of the damage or the cause of the fire.

The fire is said to have initially broken out in a supermarket. The flames later spread to an adjacent shopping center. Officers evacuated nearby buildings and parking lots. It is not known how long the subsequent extinguishing work will continue.
