    A five-metre-high avalanche reached the streets of the Bavarian community of Marktschellenberg, Focus reported, citing police.

    Police, fire and mountain rescue services arrived at the scene. No one was hurt. A specially-trained dog was used to look through the debris.

    "Until now, there was no threat of avalanches in this area, we were somewhat taken aback," a police spokesman said.

    Authorities also had to close roads and train lines because of heavy snowfall in Bavaria.
