Cause of Bornsesteeg fire unknown

The extent of the damage caused by the fire in Wageningen's Bornsesteeg student residence is not known. Nor is the cause of the fire, says student housing corporation Idealis.

The fire broke out on the ninth floor on the night of Friday 25 September. As a precaution the whole building was evacuated. Once the fire was out, residents could go back in, except for those from the flat where the fire started. Eleven students spent a week in a hotel. Once the traces of the firefighting had been clean up, most of them could go back to their rooms. Not the resident of the room where it started, though. Her room needs a total refit, so she will be allocated another one.
