The fire brigade is present with several vehicles at an old textile factory on Schoolstraat in Gemert. Smoke can be seen, but according to the officer on duty it is unclear what exactly is going on. As a precaution, he did ask for extra strength. So more equipment is coming that way.
At ten to half past nine, the fire brigade announced that the fire in the old business premises turned out not to be too bad. Photos show that there was at least a fire in a container. The situation is already under control. The first fire trucks then return to the barracks. The building is ventilated. No one was injured.
