Dozens of firefighters worked for several hours late Sunday battling a large fire at a Berlin underground station. The fire department tweeted early Monday that the blaze was under control.
Reports overnight said four people suffered injuries. Three people suffered minor injuries while a fourth was taken to hospital with burns.
The blaze engulfed the roof of Onkel Toms Huette station in the city’s Zehlendorf district after first breaking out at a shop by the station, according to a spokesman for the city’s fire brigade.
Several nearby homes had to be evacuated, the spokesman said.(dpa/NAN)
