Over a hundred people were evacuated from their homes due to a major fire in a shopping center in the Groningen town of Musselkanaal. The fire started in a bicycle shop around 11:00 p.m. on Thursday night and quickly spread to other stores. The fire is still burning, but firefighters have it under control, NOS reports.
"There will soon be a crane on site to pull down the walls, so we can extinguish better", a spokesperson for the fire brigade said to the broadcaster. The shopping center contains nine stores and restaurants.
