I talk to some wonderful mates in the Uk on another board, and here is there comments on this aswell:
A Friend of mine lives in Enschede, He was near this when it happend, he is now deaf. He has not worked since, He lost a couple of friends, who worked in the factory next to it.
Just goes to show how ignorant local governments can be, when they knew this factory existed, and the Local fire brigade didn't....
I saw some before and after pictures off that place. Totally leveled... I hear many people lost there lives.
This is all very true and sad at the same time.
