Fire in historic building De Waag in Hoorn | Inland

The building is located on the Roode Steen square, the central square in Hoorn and the center of the cheese market in the seventeenth century, when De Waag was built. There are many emergency services available. A large audience is watching.

According to owner Frank Wiese, the fire started in the building after closing time of the restaurant. According to him, the fire broke out for unknown reasons in a cart that had been outside on the terrace all evening. “Fortunately, no one was in the business when the fire broke out and everyone was unharmed. The alarm has worked well. A big compliment to all emergency services who managed to save this historic building.”

The damage is not too bad, says Wiese. “Everything is geared towards opening tomorrow.”
