Refugee Centre Also Goes Up In Flames

From Express:
MIGRANTS have been accused of starting a series of fires across Germany in a series of destructive arson attacks.

The central European country has been blighted by a series of devastating fires in recent months, many of which have been blamed on migrants.

Now another two blazes have been reported in the last week.

On Friday morning, a refugee centre in Neustadt was set ablaze, spreading to the roof being being extinguished.

The cause of the fire is still being determined and all nine inhabitants who were in the 20-person shelter at the time were able to escape to safety without injury.

However, the accommodation was meant to be vacated, according to the administrative district office, with all 20 asylum seekers who lived there supposedly due to move to community accommodation in Schleiz.

And then on Wednesday evening at around 7.20pm, a group of unknown people set fire to several yellow rubbish bins stored in a housing entrance area in Neunkirchen.

Just less than 100km from Neustadt the incident appeared to be unrelated to the bin fires.

The homeowners tried to extinguish the flames on their own, but were forced to call for help when the blaze spread - with eight vehicles being called in as the fire licked the edges of the property.

Although no one was harmed in the fires, police have estimated the property and building damage comes to around 10,000 euros.

The street was completely closed off by the police in the area, with several patrol cars from Wilnsdorf scouring the scene as officers spoke to witnesses.

One eyewitness claimed they saw four or five suspicious young men with a Mediterranean appearance, who walked from the scene of the fire on Kölner Street towards Struthütten.

They claimed they were all about 180cm tall, between 20 and 30 years old, and dressed in dark clothes.

However, the police has so far not been able to find the three suspects.

The fires are just the latest in a series of destructive attacks that are belived to have been caused by migrants.

At the beginning of January, five people were arrested over an arson attack that injured more than 50 people - and is believed to have started when a group of migrants set a mattress on fire in their camp.

Pictures posted on social media showed thick, black smoke billowing from a one-storey house after the flames quickly spread from the barracks to the building's accommodation.

Last November, migrants burned a conference centre to the ground causing £8.5 million of damage over complaints there were not enough supplies of chocolate or sweets.
