A Click Away From Deciding On Crucial Aspects For Transportation Dangerous Goods

People on the site said the blaze was in an area where chemicals were stored at Skat Ltd, which produced sterilising solutions, soaps and shampoos. It spread to most of the factory, causing extensive damage. The company employs 16 people.  Six fire engines from various stations of the Civil Protection Department were deployed. A number of private water bowsers were also sent to the site. Workers in adjoining factories were evacuated. You need Javascript and either Adobe Flash or Html5 to view this video.
