Anybody in Basel know anything about the fire in Petersgasse?

Please PM me if you do - thats my new house being built that is currently in flames

To clarify...I mean if anybody can see it or has walked past it and knows if its still standing, for example. I've seen the press reports already for those kind enough to send them.

(And if you are wondering why I don't just drive up to Basel...I have a heavily pregnant wife that I don't fancy telling yet that her dream house is up in smoke....)

Appreciate any local intelligence

Oh no! How awful for you all

Wishing you strength and I hope that the damage isn't so bad it can't be brought back to full repair with speed.

So sorry to hear that. At least your wife and bump are unharmed; houses are stone and bricks and can be replaced.

*Hugs*

The latest press reports suggest it's still standing, but 100'000sCHF damage caused. So sorry.

Re: Anybody in Basel know anything about the fire in Petersgasse?

You're moving into that lovely old building in the centre of town? Nice.

I've just spent the last two hours admiring the firemen ... I mean I've just spent the last two hours in Pinar, the restaurant opposite. Lots of damage (that isn't visible - I assume all internal and the roof) but the outside of the building looks OK.

Not now. First you have to get comfortably fuzzily drunk, punch your pillow till the feathers burst out, then look for them.

Good plan.......but fate would say that just after getting drunk, waters would break and a drive to the hospital would be needed!
