Several of the Hoevenakkers care complex’s elderly residents were evacuated yesterday.
People noticed a lot of smoke on the top floor of this retirement home in Waalre on Tuesday at around noon. The home called the fire brigade. Fortunately, there was no fire, just a pan that had been left on the stove for too long.
Nevertheless, the first-floor residents had to leave their homes for some time.
