For the moment, no casualties are to be deplored, but 200 homes have been destroyed since Tuesday evening. Residents had to evacuate urgently, they lost everything. Firefighters are still trying to control the fire, all means are deployed. But certain infrastructures such as a bridge did not resist, and prevent the progress of relief.
