Fire At Workshop For Disabled Kills 14

BERLIN (November 26, 2012)--A fire at a workshop for disabled people Monday in southwestern Germany killed 14 and injured at least six others, firefighters said.

Markus Straub, a spokesman for local firefighters, said there was no immediate information on why the building in Titisee-Neustadt, near the city of Freiburg, caught fire.

The center employs some 120 people with either mental of physical disabilities in a variety of jobs including metalwork, woodwork and electrical installation, according to the facility's website.

The center in the Black Forest region is run by the Catholic Church's Caritas organization.

Straub said some 100 firefighters were battling the flames.
