3,000 chickens die in farm fire

Some 3,000 chickens have been killed in a fire at a farm in Udenhout in Noord-Brabant, not far from Tilburg.

The birds were kept in four barns which were burnt out in the blaze. The fire is thought to have started when the complex was hit by lightening.

Some asbestos was released in the fire but the spread is minimal, fire officials told news agency ANP.
