April 11, 1996
On April 11, 1996 in Dusseldorf, Germany a fire in an occupied passenger terminal at the airport killed 17 people and injured 62. The fire began when a welder working on expansion plates in a roadway above the lower level of the terminal building failed to take proper precautions and ignited combustible insulation in the ceiling void. There were no automatic sprinklers systems, and unprotected vertical openings allowed the fire and smoke to spread to the upper levels.
