Two Brussels Firefighters Dead in Industrial Fire

 

 

The industrial fire in Ukkel, outside of Brussels, was a routine operation for the experienced team of fire fighters. But when fire gases exploded inside the building, killing two fire fighters and injuring a third, Belgian fire services were shaken to the core. How could this happen to a team, of which one of the fatalities was an experienced flashover instructor? Why did the team not see the signs of the flashover in time? The answer is to be found in the construction of the building, and the Ukkel accident can teach all fire fighters important lessons in fire development.
