Finally, on Sunday morning in Vienna-Leopoldstadt, a brigand with a final level of alert 3 at the Viennese professional fire brigade arrived. The fire in the Nordbahnhalle went off without injuries and was controlled by about one hour of lightning by up to about a hundred men. It was expected that the painting would be longer.
"We were alerted at about 1:00 pm by calls from a large number of residents in the surrounding area, and our first on-site forces discovered that there was already a fire in the Nordbahnhalle, raising the alert level from 2 to 3," said Gerald Schimpf.

On the part of the fire brigade one was with approximately one hundred man and 25 vehicles in the employment. There were also three Grotank lorries and two Teleskopmastbhnen. "Afflicted was the old empty hall, a forcing of the flames on an old brick tower next to it could be prevented," said Schimpf. The fire was brought under control within about an hour. Under breathing protection the building was searched for persons. No one was found.
The professional rescue Vienna came with eight vehicles used. There were no injuries. "But there will still be extensive reworking in the crooked building and we will certainly be there for several hours," said the fire department spokesman. Until a few months ago, the Nordbahnhalle had repeatedly been the scene of events, but had not been used lately. There were public discussions about the future of the building.
"There is no cause of fire yet," said Schimpf. This will only be the subject of investigations after the end of the fire.
