  • Description

    4 auto-motiv-vapuorgas-tanks exploded and made damages worth 2 mill. the reason yet unknown. The gas was kept in tanks in a gasoline-station next to the great electricity works of Dusseldorf, there the transformation station and the cooling towers were damaged, but lucky enough not the great cel stock. Windows were broken in a great distance, roofs damaged - free helpers of town and overland had to come and tiles the roofs again-police and firebrigade had hold up the traffic and look for safety-firebrigade renders the remained two vapour gas tanks harmless-high tensions get mended.

    Pieces of the destroyed tanks flow over roofs hundred of meters far in a near swimming pool twenty people had hurts of glass one child was severely struck from a woodenwall which fell in the swimming pool a whole class of young girls had just left the water when the explosion happened and were luckily not hurt.
