Fire in the chemical plant in Mülheim
Today Tuesday at 12.50 p.m. there was a large-scale operation on the site of a chemical plant in Mülheim-Speldorf. A product leak occurred in a distribution system for chemical substances for reasons that have not yet been clarified. The flammable liquid caught fire. When the fire brigade arrived, the approximately 15-by-25-meter facility was in full fire. Due to the company’s internal alarm plan, all employees had already been evacuated from the premises. Since there was a risk of explosion in the initial phase of the operation, the extinguishing measures were carried out with constant measurements using turntable ladders. The entire system is in a “collecting basin” so that leaking products cannot get into the groundwater. The catch basin was completely flooded with extinguishing foam during the further course of the mission.
During the approximately two-hour mission, the surrounding streets were largely closed. Over 50 fire fighters from the professional and voluntary fire brigade were on duty.
Fire on the toilet facility in a cemetery in Mülheim-Styrum. While the above-mentioned mission was still ongoing, there was an unusual mission at 1:42 p.m. in a cemetery in Mülheim-Styrum. There a toilet cubicle burned in the toilet facility of the mourning hall and caused a lot of smoke. The fire was quickly extinguished. The Broich fire brigade of the volunteer fire brigade and the professional fire brigade were deployed here. The mission was over after about 45 minutes. (TDr)
