Fire fighters exercise in occupied flat

22nd February 2009, Comments 0 comments

Fire fighters in Amsterdam conducted a fire fighting exercise on a flat in the city on Saturday, even though it was still home to three families.

AMSTERDAM - The housing corporation which owned the property mistakenly gave permission to start the exercise in the flat, scheduled for demolition, in Slotermeer.

Fortunately, none of the three families were at home when the fire fighters started a small blaze to make the exercise as realistic as possible.

The flat suffered smoke damage. The families have been provided with hotel accommodation by the housing corporation.
