On May 13th, 2000 at Enschede,The Netherlands a fire led to two massive explosions at the SE Fireworks Depot.

The explosion left 23 people dead including four firemen and 947 people injured.

estimated 2.000 homes were damaged or destroyed,leaving 1250 people homeless.

After the smoke from the fires cleared it looked like a warzone...

The residents did not even know there was a fireworks factory located next to their homes. (they thought it was a depot from the beer factory)

At the time of this disaster, i was 17 years old at the time and i just had done a long bicycle tournament through the Dutch polders in the area, when i came home, i took a break by sunbathing outside because it was a perfect sunny spring day. A hour later at 17.00 i went to take a shower and my mother turned on the TV to see all the TV channels reporting on the disaster on the TV, thats where i turned on the VCR to record footage (also uploaded on my account)
