Smoke detectors alerted staff to the fire. The fire service swiftly dispatched a team of fire-fighters, who were able to prevent the blaze from spreading. Fortunately, staff had just tested the evacuation plan.
Fire chief Bert Brugghemans said: “Fire, it can happen to anybody. Smoke detectors ensured it was only a minor incident. It proves everybody should get smoke detectors!”
The blaze did cause a lot of damage. Water damage, though, is limited.
