The Bornsesteeg student flat was partially evacuated on Saturday afternoon 22 March because of a fire.
The fire was probably caused by a television on standby. The fire brigade also warns that leaving TVs on standby can increase the risk of fire and advises people to turn their sets off completely when they have finished watching. This also saves electricity.
Nobody was hurt in the fire, but the room where it started was burnt out and completely blackened. The student was relieved to learn that his identity papers had survived.
