The fire of a warehouse in Bobigny (Seine-Saint-Denis), rue Bernard, on the border of Pantin, which occurred Friday night, is "controlled", announces the prefecture of Seine-Saint-Denis (see the tweet below), but is "not extinguished". "The operation is still ongoing," she continues. "The Paris firefighters confirm the absence of toxicity of the smoke from the fire." An announcement that will not fail to reassure residents residents to whom the authorities have asked to keep "the windows closed" and to avoid the area that is still locked. "It will continue to smoke a little more until mid-afternoon, explain the firefighters of Paris, quoted by Franceinfo. Clean-up operations are still ongoing."
The fire mobilized in the late evening 200 firefighters, with 55 machines. Eight lances were deployed "to contain the flames". On social networks, many impressive videos have shown a huge plume of black smoke, rising into the sky and being visible from Paris. The causes of the fire at this warehouse, operated by the import-export company Paris Glamour, have not yet been specified.
