BBC Website 02.01.20:

German police suspect a mother and her two adult daughters of having caused a deadly zoo fire by releasing illegal sky lanterns on New Year's Eve.The blaze killed more than 30 animals, including rare apes and monkeys, in the western city of Krefeld. Police say they have questioned the three women, local residents who are said to be "extremely sorry".They allegedly did not realise that the lanterns - bought on the internet - were banned in Germany.The fire on the night of 31 December gutted the zoo's tropical ape house.Rare Bornean orangutans, chimpanzees and marmosets lived in the 2,000 sq m (21,500 sq ft) enclosure.Two chimpanzees and a seven-strong family of gorillas survived. They were in a neighbouring Gorilla Garden, and firefighters managed to prevent the flames spreading from the ape house.Five orangutans died, along with a chimpanzee and many monkeys. The ape house - replicating a rainforest habitat - was also home to birds and fruit bats.
