The fire brigade was pulled out on Sunday morning for a large fire that broke out in a detached building on the Nieuwe Compagnie in the village of Kiel-Windeweer in Groningen. In the meantime the fire sign has been given.
That says a spokesperson for the fire department in conversation with NU.nl. No one was hurt.
The building consisted of a workshop and a storage shed. The workplace has burned down, but the fire brigade was able to stop the fire before it reached the storage shed. Shots that were heard were caused by gas bottles that exploded in the fire.
The fire brigade was on site with a lot of equipment. Large water transport was used to provide the fire extinguishers with sufficient water. With the help of an additional platform, the firefighters managed to protect the office of the company.
Thick plumes of smoke were visible in the wide area. The black smoke has since become a lighter color. Local residents received an NL-Alert in which they were warned to keep windows and doors closed. The fire department emphasizes that this warning is still valid.
Kiel-Windeer: the fire is under control. The black smoke has turned into a lighter smoke color, our advice to stay out of the smoke is still in force! The fire brigade colleagues are still busy extinguishing work.Avatar
