BERLIN, June 4 (AP) — One person was killed and 10 others were injured in a fire at a refugee shelter in eastern Germany early Sunday, local police said.
Police in the German state of Thuringia said a body was recovered from the burnt-out building after a fire broke out at a facility in the city of Apolda around 5 a.m.
A 9-year-old child was reported missing, police said. They did not say whether the recovered bodies belonged to children.
A local government spokesman told German news agency dpa that the shelter, which housed 300 people, had been evacuated and residents were taken to another refugee center in nearby Hermsdorf.
Police said 250 people were in the shelter when the fire broke out, with 10 injured and taken to a local hospital. Information about their condition was not immediately available.
An investigation to determine the cause of the fire is underway, dpa reported. (Associated Press)
