Fire in the former Karel I cigar factory in the district Tongerle in Eindhoven. The fire brigade of Eindhoven, Philips and the surrounding municipalities fight the fire. The fire was probably started deliberately in a storage for plastic. Mayor H.B.J. Witte looks at the fire which destroyed, besides plastic, the stocks of a trading company, a top hat factory, the local pharmacy of the Eindhoven hospitals and 40 million cigars were also lost.
