Fire destroys plastics factory
A fire completely destroyed a plastics factory in Alojzov, in the Prostejov region, in the early hours of Friday. There were no reports of casualties but people were advised to stay indoors as a dense curtain of black smoke spread across the area. Due to a brisk wind citizens have not had to be evacuated. The cause of the fire is being investigated. Preliminary estimates put the damage at 80 million crowns.
