The Enschede fireworks disaster, called Vuurwerkramp (Literally, "fireworks disaster") in Dutch, was caused by a fire which broke out in the S.E Fireworks depot on May 13, 2000 in the eastern Dutch town of Enschede. The fire led to an enormous explosion that left 23 people dead (including four firemen) and 947 injured [1]. The biggest blast was heard as far as 60 kilometres from the scene. About 2000 homes were destroyed, leaving 1250 people homeless. The extent of the damage was estimated at half a billion euros.
