    According to various photos and videos on Twitter there is currently a very large fire at Europa Park. Difficult to work out where it is but it appears to be in the Spanish area or the hotels. Hope everyone is ok.

    From what I've seen [limited to second and third hand accounts since I don't do Twitface], it looks like it might be the Pirates in Batavia building that's gone up? Huge amounts of black smoke. Not good.

    Here's hoping there are no injuries or worse. And obviously, that they can contain it!

    Looking again you are probably right. Either Pirates or Scandinavia.

    There is speculation that it's Fjord restaurant, spreading to the rest of Scandinavia (main alley and potentially rapids/Vineta/other attractions). It has been confirmed that Pirates is up as well, though unsure if this is where it started.

    Don't Fjord Restaurant and PiB share the same building?

    Egad, if the flames are that bad on the roof, inside must be .... I really hope they were able to evacuate in time.

    A rather unfortunate translation makes it sound as if the park intended to burn it down...

    Oh my god. That is one massive fire! I really hope everyone's OK! Wonder what caused it, and whether any attractions have been severely impacted?

    Although there's no official confirmation, this picture would indicate that Pirates is largely destroyed :(



    Loopings.nl also has a picture that shows the Scandinavian shops/restaurants well alight

    Edit - Apologies if I've repeated anything, just catching up after getting back!

    Aren't the costumes and props stored in one of the adjoining warehouses?

    I believe so, it's one of the largest if not the largest backstage areas in the park.

    It's the central hub for pretty much everything in the park!
