Translation newspaper clipping:MYSTERIOUS FIRE EXTINGUISHERThe Hague – All of a sudden it was there. A beautiful red fire extinguisher, attached to an information board at the corner of Reigersburgenweg and Bezuidenhoutseweg. Useful in case of a fire. Although …. the fire extinguisher is thoroughly chained to one of the posts of the information board. In case of fire you really need a saw to cut it loose. Not so convenient. Our inquiry about the how and why of this incomprehensible device has not yet lead to any insight. A spokesman for the fire department said: ‘We didn’t put it there’. The community centre Mariahoeve: ‘No, we don’t know anything about it, ask the local council’. They couldn’t tell us anything either. Chairman Roel questions the usefulness of the device. ‘If it‘s not attached well, it will be gone straight away, and if it is attached too well, you can’t use it. I don’t know either’.
