A bonfire competition in The Hague got out of control on Monday night as wind spread the fire towards the city.
On New Year's Eve citizens of the Scheveningen district of The Hague traditionally make bonfires on the beach, competing to make the largest one. However, this year the competition went too far as the wind spread the fire, raining sparks down on the surrounding area and causing damage... Еще to property.
Firefighters arrived promptly and managed to contain the fire. They managed to extinguish the fires early afternoon on Tuesday, according to reports. Minor damage was reported around the pier and beach area, with plastic parts on cars and bikes having been melted by the intense temperature.
