A fire broke out in a house above the Piet Daemen bicycle shop in Vlodrop on Saturday evening. The residents were able to get to safety.
The first fire report from Tussen de Bruggen was received by the emergency call center at around 8:30 p.m. Within minutes it was scaled to “Big Fire”.
The elderly couple tried to put out the fire, said a fire department spokesman. That didn’t work and they fled the building. In the meantime, the fire brigade was on site with several fire engines and the fire was reported around 9:00 p.m.
Residents cannot return home. Your house is uninhabitable. “They will be housed elsewhere. The bike shop also suffered smoke and water damage,” said the fire department spokesman.
It is not yet known how the fire started.
