The outbreak of fire in a crowded barrack was always a serious concern for German authorities. As a result, prisoners practiced fire escape drills on a regular basis. At Traunstein, civilian internees could escape from the third floor of their barrack by means of a canvas chute or by ladders while the camp fire brigade would combat the blaze. German officers supervise the exercise.
