Os seis bombeiros do posto de Syke só conseguiram controlar o incêndio que destruiu o local após a chegada de reforços de cidades vizinhas.
As investigações iniciais apontam que o fogo pode ter começado por causa de um curto-circuito na fiação eléctrica.
Essa é a segunda vez que um incêndio destrói o posto do Corpo de Bombeiros de Syke, segundo o "Austrian Times". Ele tinha sido reconstruído em 1994.
All six fire engines perished in the 3 million GBP blaze in Syke, northern Germany, and it took 250 firemen from nearby towns to finally bring the inferno under control.
Investigators believe the fire fighters could have triggered the blaze themselves in a training exercise accident or that faulty wiring was to blame.
The weekend blaze was the second time the brigade has lost all its engines in a fire. The station was rebuilt in 1994 after being gutted by a fire.
"A fire service that can't even keep its own fire station and engines safe doesn't exactly inspire confidence," raged one local.
