Several people catch fire after blowing up a caravan

Video footage from RIjswijk shows multiple people catching fire after a caravan they set alight exploded. It is not clear how severely they were injured in this incident on New Year’s Eve.

According to Omroep West, a group of people set a caravan on fire on Steenlaan. Several gas bottles inside the caravan exploded, resulting in a number of people close to the vehicle catching fire.

The police had to deploy riot police to support the fire brigade in extinguishing the fire. The riot police formed a line to keep gathered young people at a distance, so that firefighters could do their work unhindered.
