An elderly couple died at camping site De Achterste Hoef in the Noord-Brabant town of Bladel during the early hours of Sunday morning. A fire had broken out in their caravan, De Stentor reports.

The victims' identity still has to be officially determined. But based on the campsite's register and the license plate of the caravan, the police know which campsite guests were involved. The victims are a 77-year-old man and his 70-year-old wife from Apeldoorn. They've been coming to the campsite for 15 years, according to the newspaper.

Hundreds of caravans went up in flames when a large fire broke out in a warehouse in Rijsenhout, near Schiphol airport. The fire department responded en masse, but could not save the building. No one was injured.

The fire broke out around 05:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. The fire department declared a Grip 1 situation. Twelve homes had to be evacuated and 30 residents had to find shelter elsewhere.

After about two hours, firefighters managed to get the fire under control. Extinguishing the fire is expected to take several more hours. The situation was scaled down to Grip 0.
