The three women are estimated to have dropped one of the five skylights cast in Crefeld. Hopman said the mother and her two daughters lit the sky lights on New Year`s Eve for "New Year`s Blessing" and "didn`t expect anything at all." "

It is alleged that they did not realize that the lanterns purchased on the Internet were banned in Germany. Krefeld prosecutor said the three women were being investigated for alleged arson. Under law, such offences are punishable by up to five years`imprisonment or a fine.


Dangerous lanterns

The report said the lanterns, mostly from China and considered highly dangerous, had been banned throughout Germany for about a decade. The outer shell of the sky lamp is made of thin oil paper with a candle or fuel box in the middle. can float far in the air after igniting.

Hopman said the alleged perpetrators of the fire were seen on television on Wednesday, Jan. The banned lights could have been the cause of the fire, and the three turned themselves in after police asked all those who had lit the lights to report the case.

Eight apes were killed in the zoo fire. Many of the smaller monkeys and birds were consumed by the fire. The Crefeld Zoo continued to close on January 3 and is scheduled to reopen on Friday, but the fire site will be blocked.

The zoo`s speaker said the damage was still uncertain. But in any case, the biggest loss is invisible, because the people who are buried in the fire are endangered animals. The zoo is known to have received significant donations and pledges. The people gave "great" support and sympathy.
