On a roof of a building in Rotterdam-Blijdorp a fire broke on Monday afternoon. It is a former bank building on the Baljuwstraat. Around 13:30 the signal came on fire.
There were no injuries. A trauma helicopter had been sent to the Baljuwstraat to possibly provide first aid.
There are several apartments in the building. Three floors were evacuated in connection with the smoke development. The 19 residents were taken care of in the nearby Albeda College. Because there may be asbestos in the building, it is unclear when they can go home again.
