Three people have been “slightly injured” in the blaze.
A fire has broken out at Berlin’s Club der Visionaere.
Firefighters were called to the Kreuzberg club earlier this morning (June 15) and prevented the fire from spreading to a nearby gas station.
According to the city’s fire department, three people were “slightly injured” in the blaze and the club is “almost completely burned out.” The cause of the fire is currently unknown.
The beloved canalside club had hosted a party last night with Dark Entries’ affiliate James Dean Brown and Tokyo-based DJs Yasu, Nehan, Shame M and Den.
