A huge fire broke out at industrial estate Ekkersrijt this afternoon. A drug lab was found on the premises. Three people have been taken into custody.
By the time the fire broke out, the police were already present in the property, investigating a report about a drug lab. It was not clear whether there were still people inside at the time the fire broke out.
Somewhat later, the police announced on Twitter that three people had been arrested. The fire brigade has extinguished the fire and the police are still investigating. Remnants of a drug lab have indeed been found.
There were rumours that shots had been fired by police officers, but the police denies this.
