The contingent included two units specialized in firefighting, a platform for high operations, and an operational command vehicle, aiming for a quick and effective response to the critical situation.
Despite the severity of the fire and the subsequent collapse of parts of the Botanik building, under construction in the said district, the construction company responsible for the work confirmed that, fortunately, there were no victims.

Local authorities are committed to controlling the flames and assessing the damage caused by the fire. The mobilization’s main goal is to ensure the safety of nearby residents and pedestrians in the area, while experts work to determine the causes of the fire.
