Fire at 3000 meters: Botta restaurant is robbed of the flames

The fire was discovered around 4:30 a.m. on Monday morning, the Vaud canton police said on Monday. The extent of the damage is not yet foreseeable. The accident site can currently only be reached by air.

According to initial findings, no one was in the building at the time of the fire. The police therefore assume that no one was injured in life or limb. However, the upper part of the mountain station with the Botta restaurant seems to have been completely engulfed in flames.

Before cable car operations can be reopened, technical checks must now be carried out. The railway will therefore remain closed all day, at least on Monday. The extinguishing work should last until the evening, according to the police. (wap)
