Massive fire in Enschede

Fire-fighters in Enschede spent Sunday night bringing a massive fire under control and were still at the scene on Monday morning.

The blaze has caused extensive damage to the 3,500 square metre Starworld amusement complex in the former Diekman hall which housed a paintball centre, laser games and other leisure activities. Soot from the fire has covered the neighbourhood but there is no danger to residents. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
