Breaking News: Trainwagons on Fire in Zwijdrecht

Nice footage from Dutch Television NOS of a not so nice accident. In Zwijndrecht, a little town south of Rotterdam, where I have lived quite some time, there is a big fire of presently 2 wagons filled with ethanol (a sort of alcohol). At the Kijfhoek emplacement, the location of the fire, there are hundreds of other wagons stationed around the two burning wagons that may contain serious hazardous chemicals. This happens within a week of another huge chemical packing company fire a couple of miles south at Moerdijk.

Am glad I’m living in The Hague now and that I’m not down wind from the fire which is approx 40 miles from where I live.
