The fire and large amount of smoke triggered an NL Alert on Thursday evening, according to the Telegraaf. Locals were advised to stay indoors, keep their windows and doors closed, and give the emergency services room to work. The public works department Rijkswaterstaat closed the A2 highway between Beesd and Geldermalsen due to “poor visibility caused by smoke development.”
The fire destroyed the multi-company building, the local security region confirmed. Firefighters managed to keep the fire from spreading, but it still damaged some surrounding buildings.
