It happened in Pennsylvania, it happened in China, and now it's happened in Germany. Around 70 volunteer firefighters in Saterland, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, responded to a fire call and arrived to find their own station burning down!
But by the time the volunteer fire fighters arrived at their station, which was just five years old, the blaze had already consumed the building, making it impossible for them to enter.
Despite their best attempts to control the flames from outside, the 70 volunteers were forced to watch on helpless as the entire building was destroyed.
No one was injured. The damage is estimated at about five million euros.
