The largest theme park in Germany had a massive fire on Monday that sent a thick column of black smoke into the sky that could be seen for kilometers around.
Firefighters were on the scene, according to the police, and the burning at the Europa-Park in the town of Rust, close to the French border, was “under control.”
Police in the southwest German town of Offenburg said that “all visitors are currently in the process of leaving the park in an orderly manner.” “At this time, there is no information about injured people.”
According to the local newspaper Badische Zeitung, the Magic World of Diamonds and the park’s Spanish-themed portion are the primary foci of the fire.
More than six million people visited Europa-Park last year, largely from Germany, France, and Switzerland.
It is a well-known tourist attraction.
It contains three fantasy-inspired zones and six areas with themes based on various European nations.
In addition to holding conferences, the park is a well-liked location for events and television projects.
