  • Description

    A big fire on an industrial estate in Holland today (Sunday) caused damage estimated at about GBP3,500,000 Sterling. The blaze started in a factory making nylon stockings at Emmen, near the West German border.

    Strong winds quickly spread the flames to two smaller plants on the estate. Firemen from three brigades were called in, but they were hampered by the searing heat and the thick pall of smoke which soon covered the area.

    The factory, where 1,200 people worked, was completely gutted. So were two other buildings, but no casualties were reported. It took the firemen more than five hours to bring the blaze under control.
