Pharmaceutical Depot Burns Down
Fire erupted in Pharmapark, the Budaörs facility of UPS Healthcare Tuesday morning. Attila Csámpai, spokesman for Pest county Disaster Control, said 5,000m2 of the 15,000m2 warehouse complex was destroyed.

Eighty fire-fighters worked for hours to extinguish the flames.

Nine people had been in the building when the fire erupted but all escaped.

There were huge traffic jams on the adjoining M1 and M7 motorway as drivers slowed down to view the scene.

As a precaution the neighbouring Tesco and other stores were evacuated.

Some shoppers were taken away in specially provided buses.
