In other news, the German government also praised the Reichstag fire situation, saying that there was a vast improvement today in the number of rooms that have caught fire in the absence of the fire brigade. “Today, only five rooms caught fire, compared to seven yesterday, so we think the situation is improving with a notable drop in new rooms on fire and there is no need to involve the fire brigade at this stage.”
