Two fires in the south of the country were tackled by the local fire brigade between Saturday night and Sunday morning, one cause major damage to a shed in Gaalgebierg, the other happened in Soleuvre.

Gaalgebierg

It was at about 4.30am on Sunday morning when firefighters rushed to the scene of a fire on Gaalgebierg hill above Esch-sur-Alzette.

A shed completely made of wood was reported ablaze and several fire engines arrived to tackle the flames.

The fire was eventually extinguished, luckily before it spread to nearby gardens.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown.

Soleuvre

It was earlier in the evening, at about 9pm on Saturday that firefighters were called out to Soleuvre, not far from the Esch fire that was to occur later. A mattress caught fire and the flames began to spread, but the blaze was extinguished before it could cause major damage. The cause of this fire is also unknown.
