Curious operation on Monday afternoon for the fire brigade in the Tyrolean Sölden. Ironically, a diesel unit that was used to charge electric trucks caught fire. The cause may have been a technical defect.
The scene of the unusual operation was the area of the toll station on the Ötztal Glacier Road in Sölden. The diesel unit caught fire there shortly after 4 p.m. – while an electric truck was being charged. Workers sounded the alarm “A worker who was operating the unit suddenly noticed clouds of smoke in the area of the container in which the unit was installed , and immediately made an emergency call,” reported the police. “Nobody got hurt. It is suspected that a technical defect caused the fire,” the investigators concluded.
