Explosion in Wernau: oil tank explodes

An explosion in Adlerstraße on Thursday morning called the emergency services, fire brigade, THW and police to the scene.

According to current knowledge, there was an explosion at around 11:30 a.m. for reasons that are still unclear while a specialist company was cleaning an oil tank in the basement of a vacant residential building. This shook the entire building.

The resulting pressure wave also hurled shards of a burst door to the outside. A 35-year-old worker from the tank cleaning company who was in front of the house was slightly injured by splinters.

He was released after outpatient treatment by the rescue service on site. Since the house is to be demolished independently of the explosion, there was no damage to property. A Nissan parked nearby was damaged by flying debris.

The damage to the car is currently estimated at around 2,000 euros. The structural analysis of the building is still ongoing. The Business and Environment department of the Reutlingen Police Headquarters has started the investigation with the support of the Trade Inspectorate of the Esslingen District Office. (pol/gm)
