Due to the fire, three flights were transferred to other airports, but there was no complete shutdown of the airport.
A strong fire occurred on Thursday night at the airport in the Belgian city of Liege. This was reported on Thursday, July 23rd, by the Tele Liege TV channel.
“At the airport in the Belgian city of Liege, the hangar of the service company Aeroservices caught fire. There was no complete shutdown of the airport. The entire fire department was involved in extinguishing the fire,” said the airport spokesman Christian Delcourt.
Delcourt also said that all airport personnel are safe. Large airliners at Liege Airport were not affected, but small aircraft could remain in the burned-out hangar.
According to the airport administration, no one was injured as a result of the fire, but significant material damage was caused.
“A massive fire broke out at the airport at 22.30. Fortunately, there were no casualties, but significant damage was caused to the B30 structure next to the passenger terminal. The situation is currently under control,” the airport’s Facebook page said.
