    TWO SPECTACULAR FIRES STRUCK IN EUROPE YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) - ONE IN ROTTERDAM WHICH COST THE EQUIVALENT OF HUNDREDS OF POUNDS STERLING, AND THE OTHER ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA, NEAR NICE, WHICH WIPED OUT A LARGE AREA OF PINE FOREST.

    THE ROTTERDAM FIRE DESTROYED TWO PACKING SHEDS OF A CO-OPERATIVE FARM AUCTION BUILDING, MOSTLY FILLED WITH EMPTY PACKING CRATES. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WATCHED THE FIRE AT CLOSE HAND, AND, ACCORDING TO THE FIREMEN, OFTEN GOT IN THEIR WAY. PEOPLE IN THE HAGUE, TEN MILES (14 KILOMETRES) AWAY SAW THE PALL OF SMOKE.
