windmills Dutch windmill ravaged by fire

Early on 25th Dec 2004, one of a series of 5 windmills in the Netherlands went up in flames, due to an unknown cause. I'm trying to identify exactly where the mill is - the filename suggests it may be at at HoornscheVaart, but I can't locate where that is.

Various images of the burnt mill are available - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Update: [3/2/05] The Hoornsche Vaart is the name of a canal between Alkmaar and Hoorn. The burnt out mill has an entry in the Dutch Mill database, and its own site which gives the story of its recent renovation (in Dutch).
