Fire in food factory

Unclear smoke development during fire in food processing plant

In a food processing plant in Friesoythe (Germany), a fire occurred on Monday 07.08.23 with so far unexplained cause of smoke. After arrival of the first emergency forces the cause of the strong smoke situation was still unclear. Therefore forces from the urban area, as well as the special teams with focus on LUF, ELW2 and drones were requested. The source of the fire could be localized and removed under the use of several ventilation devices. The entire building had to be ventilated with the LUF 60 and various fans until it was smoke-free. After about 4.5 hours, the task forces were able to return home and reinstate the readiness of the vehicles.
