Large resources are engaged by the firefighters of Sdis 34: 60 “fire fighters” on the spot with pump-tonne vans and water carriers, 55 Roma are evacuated. This fire occurred a few hours after the evacuation of the Roma encampment near Mas Rouge.

The residents of La Marbrerie do not hide their concern: “Pieces of tires fly off after exploding, it’s scary. Gas cylinders are on fire. And then there’s this cloud of thick toxic fumes pouring over our properties, it’s unbreathable “.

Public Security police are on site for the customary investigation. The prefect of Hérault and the mayor of Montpellier are expected on site.
