Chemical fire damage to property over €4m

The fire at a chemical packaging company in Moerdijk near Rotterdam three weeks ago caused damage totalling €4.1m to other companies and private individuals, according to town council calculations.

The figure does not include damage to the Chemie-Pack plant itself or the clean-up.
In total, the council says it has 138 damages claims, mainly from agricultural companies close to the blaze.
