Probably due to lightning strike a 16 storey highrise, housing students of the University of Nijmegen (the Netherlands), caught fire.
The result was a nice fireball and lots of smoke…

wow.  I wonder what caused that.  There must have been something stored on the roof or some gas lines or something.  That’s a heck of an explosion.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Yeah, when you get a big black cloud of smoke like that, that’s often a gasoline or oil or other petroleum product fire.
