A very large fire destroyed a primary school in Lelystad in the night from Wednesday to Thursday. The fire brigade pulled out with fire trucks from several regions and was forced to evacuate surrounding houses.
At least six households had to move elsewhere temporarily. According to Broadcaster Flevoland school De Triangel, which would probably be demolished, must be considered lost. 130 students would have had lessons there.
The school is located in the middle of a residential area. A civil network report was sent to warn local residents, in which they were advised to close windows and doors.
The Flevoland fire department reports on Twitter that combustion residues can be found on cars in the area on Thursday morning: the flames were accompanied by strong smoke development. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
