Hamburg, Germany -- A fire at warehousing and logistics company HD Cotterell & Co in Hamburg docks has reportedly destroyed 2000 tonnes of natural rubber and other goods.
Furthermore, the oils and other residues have caused oily films on the local canals and dock areas. Firefighters said their protective suits have been ruined by tar-like residues and some ruined buildings are covered with up to 60 inches of a slimy residue, which has also found its way into drains and sewers, causing blockages.
Local firefighters are seeking ways to remove the sticky, slimy residue.
