The emergency services were Wednesday night around 19.30 hrs warned of a heavy smoke and fire in the diy store. The store was just closed. “The fire had broken out on the buitenafdeling of the store where the building materials are," says Kristof Geens, the spokesperson of the Fire brigade Zone Antwerp. “We were quite rapidly and massively on the spot. Therefore, we have been able to prevent the flames have been skipped on the store itself. That continued to be thus spared. Or the store can open Thursday, is likely to be the people of Brico themselves to decide.” The store was significant rookschade.
The fire department had the fire quickly under control. During the bluswerken had neighbors windows and doors closed. Also in the nablussen was asked to do that because the smoke had a lot of time stuck. The Sint-Bernardsesteenweg and the intersection Zwaantjes were a long time closed to traffic.
