A large fire destroyed restaurant De Klok in the Noord-Holland village of Egmond aan Zee on Thursday afternoon. The fire department had to call in the help of rescue organization KNRM to supply additional extinguishing water from the sea, NU.nl reports.

Firefighters managed to prevent the fire spreading to other buildings. The fire department eventually decided to demolish the building, to make it easier to get to and extinguish the fire.

The fire caused a lot of smoke. An NL Alert was issued warning local residents to keep their windows and doors closed.
