Last year fewer people submitted damage claims for fire to Dutch insurers, according to the Dutch Association of Insurers. A total of almost 96 thousand fire damage claims were received last year, a decrease of 7 percent compared to 2016, NOS reports.

The association largely attributes the decrease to the fact that there were fewer storms in the Netherlands last year. "Experience shows that thunderstorms often cause a lot of fire claims, but luckily they were absent last year", director Richer Weurding said to NOS.
