A blaze engulfed a BMW automobile plant on Sunday in the German town of Landshut, located about 70 kilometers north of the Bavarian capital Munich. Three workers suffered minor injuries in the incident, Der Spiegel reports. A metal caster caught fire during maintenance works in one of the factory’s workshops for reasons that remain unknown, the plant’s spokesman told the German media outlet.
