Zendmast Rijswijk (Gld) on fire for the third time

In Rijswijk, in Gelderland, another fire has started in a transmitter mast. This is the third time this has happened to this mast.

The fire was discovered around 02.00 hours and was then extinguished by the fire brigade:

Earlier, in April and June, the same mast was on fire. At that time it was arson and there was a lot of damage. Whether the fire was lit this time is not yet known. Nor is it clear how extensive the damage is now.

In the past few months, more fires have been started at transmitter masts. Presumably there is a connection with resistance to the rollout of the 5G network in the Netherlands. Some people fear that this technique poses major health risks, but scientific evidence is lacking.
