Trier (dpa / lrs) – Several bags self-ignited in a garbage truck in Trier. The police said there was a bang and smoke in the container of the car on Friday morning. The driver then steered the vehicle into a safe area and emptied the contents of the container. The burning garbage bags were extinguished with the help of firefighters. According to the police, the cause of the fire was initially unclear. Incorrectly disposed of garbage could be a possible trigger, it said. The police therefore appealed not to dispose of items such as batteries, rechargeable batteries and highly flammable substances in household waste or the yellow bag.
