Waffle Factory Fire – level 2

28-11-2017 07:00

A fire broke out at a waffle factory in Brussels. The fire left a thick cloud of smoke in the air, which disrupted road and rail traffic. People from nearby factories and children from a school had to evacuate, too.

The fire started in the cooling system of the factory, and then the fire quickly spread. We do not know, however, why it started. No one was injured in the incident.

Difficult words: break out (start suddenly), disrupt (disorder, upset, make chaotic).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
