Straw wagon ablaze in Kortemark

In Kortemark (West Flanders) a giant straw wagon was on fire yesterday. The inferno triggered a big plume of smoke and firefighters had a lot of work to put the fire out. The incident took place on the N35, the town's busiest road, which remained closed for several hours. Local residents were asked to keep doors and windows closed. A technical failure at the bottom of the wagon is thought to have created the blaze.
