A giant aquarium in Berlin inexplicably exploded, leaving about 1,500 exotic fish out on the road. All reportedly have died.

Along with that, the roadway became flooded, resulting in about 100 emergency services personnel being dispatched to the scene, Reuters reported. Two people were also reportedly injured as a result of the blast.

“It felt like an earthquake” said Naz Masraff, who had been staying at the hotel where the aquarium was located, via Reuters.

While many of the fish died, some were still alive in smaller tanks. Efforts are being made to rescue them, despite the fact there is no electricity in the building, authorities said.

Per CNN:

“Fire department spokesman Adrian Wentzel told CNN affiliate NTV that the incident happened around 5:50 a.m. local time. Wentzel said glass and other debris were swept out of the hotel onto the nearby street. Emergency services were forced to shut a major road next to the building because of the large volume of water flooding out. Wentzel said the cause of the incident was still being investigated.”

There was also plenty of damage done to the hotel, with glass and other debris covering the floor of the lobby. As revealed by several guests on social media.

It has not been determined what caused the explosion.

“We are dismayed at the accident and wish the two injured persons all the best and a speedy recovery. We would also like to express our dismay to our affected tenants,” read a statement from AquaDom, the owner of the aquarium.

“We are currently trying to get a more precise picture of the situation and the damage caused in coordination with the police and fire brigade on site.”
