At 13 may in 2000, a fireworks factory in Enschede, the Netherlands explodes. The text near the end of the video is in English "You see the images in slowmotion, and it is very easy to see the full scale of the explosion. Roofs are literally blown of houses.".

I apologise for the poor quality of the video, I made this many years ago as part of a school project. If YouTube offered video replacement, I would upload a higher quality version of the video.

To everyone speculating on government landmines and heavy explosives, no evidence has ever been found to support this, and the two main theories are arson and accidental ignition via an electrical circuit. The explosive power of fireworks is unfortunately a lot higher than what people often realise.

I have nothing but respect for those that died on that day, their families and the professionals that fought the fire that day and lost colleagues. The events of the 13th of May 2000 are tragic. I'm not happy about the way this video represents the disaster, it's very sensational when it should not be.

See wikipedia for more information on the disaster:

The music is the old intro to the video game F.E.A.R.
