Janne Friederike Meyer got a fright when she was on her way back from the Glock Horse Performance Center in Villach: there was a fire at her yard in Pinneberg, so the Hamburger Abendblatt said. But the show-jumper who just completed the building of the yard together with her husband this year was lucky: the animals were not harmed. It seems that the fire was caused by a technical failure but the investigation is still ongoing.
Fortunately a neighbour had noticed the fire and called the emergency service. He and other helpers had already tried to extinguish the fire with a garden hose. The fire brigade who arrived with ten vehicles and a team of 44 people praised the neighbour’s actions.
