Substantial damage in explosion in flat Heemskerk

An explosion occurred in the porch of an apartment building on Raadhuisstraat in Heemskerk around 11:45 p.m. A police explosives squad is currently investigating.

The occupant of one house has had to leave his house, as long as it is not clear whether the situation is safe. That is what the police investigation will reveal. The street has also been cordoned off with police tape. Other residents can sleep safely at home, the police said.

The explosion in the central hall of the apartment building caused a lot of damage, but no one else was injured.

The police would like to get in touch with witnesses to the explosion or with people with camera images.
