A very large fire in the Groningse Oosterparkwijk on Thursday evening destroyed an erotic massage parlor on the Oliemuldersweg. As far as is known, no injured people were killed, but around forty homes had to be evacuated.
The fire department received a report of the fire around 11 p.m. Initially scaled up to a medium fire, but around half past eleven it was scaled up again, now to a very large fire.

Households in the area were warned with an NL-Alert for the fairly significant smoke development. It was advised to close and keep windows and doors closed. The smoke would have been visible from miles away.
Around midnight the fire brigade had control of the sea of flames. The fire brigade informed RTV Noord that they had the building burned out in a controlled manner. How the fire could occur is not yet clear.
The massage parlor is the second erotic establishment that goes up in smoke within a month in the Groningen area. At the end of June, Swingers Dream destroyed a large party club on Winschoterweg.
