The firefighters took nearly three hours to bring the fire that broke out this Tuesday afternoon in Pouilly-sous-Charlieu, at Soforec-Brossette, a metal recycling company. The emergency services, fearing an explosion, evacuated employees and residents. All risk is now eliminated.

The danger is now over at Soforec-Brossette, the metal recycling company in Pouilly-sous-Charlieu (Loire). But it took 36 firefighters for more than three hours, for a fire that started around 2 p.m. According to the emergency services, it is incandescent metal shavings which would have set fire to a pallet located near a stock of gas cylinders. Hence the fears of explosion.

Firefighters specializing in chemical risk management were mobilized. As a safety measure, 64 people were evacuated: factory employees, of course, but also residents of the company located on rue de Briennon. The security perimeter has been lifted since the end of the afternoon. Everyone will be able to return to their homes.
