An instrument factory fire in Romania has overnight destroyed approximately 4,000 newly-crafted violins and extensively damaged the building and operations.

Local media have suggested that the blaze at the Hora Musical Instruments factory, in Reghin, took 90 firefighters to control – and has caused in excess of €250,000 in damages.

Fire authorities have indicated the fire is believed to have started from a electrical short circuit.
