La Voulte-sur-Rhone, France
The fire started outside the company. It spread through a pile of pallets on a part of the building. This pharmaceutical company is a low threshold company, classified by Séveso, because it uses chemicals, including metal nitrate, which can cause explosions. A safety circuit was therefore created.
The company was empty at the time of the fire, but ten people working in the neighboring company were closed. Department 86 is cut off. And many firefighters are here on this Saturday night
