Dutch TV Tower in Hoogersmilde Collapses After Fire (Video)

Hoogersmilde Tower Collapses

The top section of a radio and TV broadcasting tower in the Dutch town of Hoogersmilde has collapsed following a fire.

Before the collapse, the 984 feet high (300m) Hoogersmilde tower was one of the tallest in the Netherlands. No one was injured in the collapse and the cause of the fire is unknown.

Fire also broke out at a broadcasting tower in the central town of Lopik last night. As of yet no connection between the two blazes has been established.

Large parts of the Netherlands have been left without over-the-air FM radio due to the twin transmission tower troubles, reports BBC.
