Huge fire in front of the Abattoir

In the Rue Heyvaert, opposite the Abattoir, a huge fire raged in a row house during the night from last Sunday to Monday. The Brussels fire brigade extinguished the fire until late in the afternoon. The two houses affected are said to be on the verge of collapse, which does not make the task of the fire brigade any easier. Unfortunately, among our neighbours, there were not only many injuries but also one death victim. ABATTOIR would like to express its sympathy to the affected families and thanks the emergency services for their enormous efforts. The street and our main entrance are temporarily closed to all traffic. Please avoid the Rue Ropsy Chaudron. The site is currently only accessible via the Quai de l'Industrie 168 (along the canal)
