A few days ago there was a huge fire in a chemical plant here in the country. In a news broadcast you can see a spectecular view of the Strijensas lighthouse (http://www.flickr.com/photos/francoismique/3888112348/)against the burning sky. http://nos.nl/uitzending/30155-20110105-200000-nos-journaal-2000-uur.html It's only one ore 2 seconds, at about 9:44.
