Fourteen young people were staying at the farm. They were released with the shock.
For them temporary shelter is sought. This also applies to about thirty holidaymakers in chalets next to the farm.
The fire started around half past six in a barn with a thatched roof on the holiday park, and then turned to the farm. Fire brigades from Drachten, Surhuisterveen and Drogeham are on site.
The signal came on fire around seven o'clock. There is still being extinguished. At least five large smoke and water damage have been caused by the chalets.
