    BERLIN (Sputnik) – Four people, including two Russian citizens, suffered severe burns as a result of a fire in the northwestern German state of Lower Saxony, the NDR broadcaster reported on Wednesday.

    The incident occurred on Sunday evening during a youth meeting under an exchange program in the Luechow-Dannenberg district, the NDR broadcaster says.

    The blaze reportedly erupted after an electrical cable had fallen into the fire of a gas stove.

    The list of injured people includes two Russian citizens, aged 18 and 24, a 21-year-old Tanzanian citizen and an 80-year-old German citizen. All of them were hospitalized following the incident.
