Fire on A67: Importance of Safe Storage of Lithium Batteries

On Thursday afternoon, April 18, a concerning incident occurred on the A67 near Eersel: a truck loaded with batteries caught fire, leading to a distressing situation on the highway. Although the fire was fortunately quickly extinguished, it still had significant consequences for traffic and once again highlighted the importance of safe storage of lithium batteries.

The fire department quickly arrived to combat the fire, but as a result of the incident, the highway was initially completely closed in both directions. Although traffic could later resume, motorists still had to contend with delays, especially in the direction of Belgium.

It is not yet clear what exactly caused the fire, but the incident underscores the importance of safety measures in the storage and transportation of lithium batteries. The risks of such fires can be significantly reduced by using special lithium safety containers, designed to minimize the risk of fire and explosions.
