After the major fire at the Gräfenhausen-Ost rest stop on Autobahn 5, the facility is partially reopened.

A spokesman for the Tank & Rast group announced on Thursday that it has been renovated and travelers can use the restaurant, café and toilets with showers again with immediate effect.

However, the petrol station is not yet in operation and it will probably not be possible to refuel until next spring.

Weiterstadt - "Hessenschau.de" had previously reported on the topic.

In August, a man crashed his car against a girder on the roof structure of the facility.

His car broke in two and caught fire, killing the driver.

Several petrol pumps, a van and the roof of the plant in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district caught fire.

At the last second, an employee switched off the fuel supply to the petrol pumps with the emergency stop switch, thus preventing a possible disaster.
