Fire at De Dolle

Joe Stange is reporting (at his Thirsty Pilgrim blog) that there has been a fire at the beloved De Dolle brewery in Esen, Belgium. Apparently a basement fuel tank exploded. One employee is reported injured. Bad news. My thoughts -- and yours, I'm sure -- are with the families involved; there's time to worry about the beer later.

According to the attached link, the outcome of the fire does not appear to be serious and did not damage brewing or the bottling area.
