Fire in boiler room TU Delft Library


A fire broke out in the TU Delft Library on Sunday morning, 11 April. It started in one of the technical rooms – a boiler – on the fourth floor. 

When the incident occurred, about 200 students and employees were present. They were evacuated and were later able to go back inside to collect the things they had left behind.


“Fortunately, the fire brigade had the fire under control quickly, so the damage was not extensive”, says Library Project Leader Linda Heemskerk. However, there was a nasty burning smell in the building, so the library remained closed for the rest of the day. (MvdV)
