Broadcasting was disrupted in the Netherlands last weekend by two separate fires at radio and television transmission sites. The massive Lopik transmission site was shut down after a small fire at the facility that may have been caused by a short circuit. The Hoogersmilde tower (warning – links to unverified article from Wikipedia), which is almost 1,000 feet tall, partially collapsed following a separate fire (video). The suspected cause here is a lightning strike during a storm.
A Nos television spokesman said there is no link between the two fires.
