A fire broke out in the premises on the Zevenheuvelenweg in Tilburg in the night from Thursday to Friday. The fire has spread to two adjacent buildings. NUjers and bystanders report that several explosions have taken place.

The fire started in a bakery around 3 a.m. The fire brigade had to scale up quickly, according to the Central and West Brabant safety region on Twitter.

Due to the plastic items in the three buildings, there is a lot of smoke nuisance in the area. The fire department advises local residents to keep windows and doors closed. At 4.30 a NL-Alert was sent to residents in the region.

To fight the fire, fire extinguishers from several regions and one from the Air Force came to Tilburg.
