Another Polish supermarket goes up in flames, this time just north of Amsterdam

Another explosion has gone off at a Polish supermarket, this time in the Beverhof Shopping Center in Beverwijk, a half-hour drive from Amsterdam. 

This store carries the same name as the supermarkets hit in Aalsmeer (also in North Holland) and Heeswijk-Dinther (in North Brabant) yesterday, reports NOS.

Police are investigating whether the explosion in Beverwijk, which went off at 5:15 AM this morning, has any connection to the explosions from yesterday.

The damage

Stones lie in the streets outside the Beverwijk supermarket, and the back wall is most damaged. But a police spokesperson has confirmed that no one was injured since no one lives in or above this mall. The building is still structurally sound.
