When the fire brigade arrived, the roof structure of a residential building in Weil der Stadt was already on fire. The smoke was thick, according to the fire department.

In the course of extinguishing the fire, parts of the roof had to be removed. The occupants of the house were not present. However, firefighters found two dogs in the building.

Any help came too late for one of the dogs. He could only be recovered dead. The surviving dog was handed over to the police.
