Article 894. Storage of things with dangerous properties.

1. Things that are flammable, explosive or generally dangerous by nature, if the depositor did not warn the custodian about these properties during their deposit, may be neutralized or destroyed by the depositor at any time without compensation to the depositor for damages. The depositor shall be liable for damages caused in connection with the storage of such things to the custodian and to third parties. When transferring things with hazardous properties to a professional custodian for storage, the rules provided for in the first paragraph of this clause apply when such things were deposited under the wrong name and the custodian could not verify their hazardous properties by external inspection. In case of paid storage in cases stipulated by this paragraph, the paid remuneration for storage of things shall not be returned, and if it has not been paid, the depositary may collect it in full. 2. If the things accepted for storage with the knowledge and consent of the custodian specified in the first paragraph of clause 1 of this article have become, despite the observance of their storage conditions, dangerous for others or for the custodian’s property or third parties and the circumstances do not allow the depositor to demand to take them away, or he does not fulfill this requirement, these things can be neutralized or destroyed by the keeper without compensation to the bailor of damages. The depositor shall not be liable in this case to the custodian and third parties for damages caused in connection with the storage of these things.
