the main fire this Tuesday March 16 in Toulouse in the Chalets district. A garage that used to be a workshop was destroyed. There are no injuries.

The firefighters mobilized significant resources this Tuesday evening March 16 following a fire with a lot of smoke on the corner of Rue des Chalets and Rue Edouard-Dulaurier in Toulouse. The warning was given at 7:17 p.m.

When the first teams arrived, the flames had destroyed a garage that had been converted into a workshop. An explosion, possibly a gas cylinder, impressed the witnesses. The fire advanced over a hedge of vegetation and threatened the main house. The firefighters quickly took control of the fire. Due to the smoke development, the residents of four nearby apartments had to be evacuated until the disaster was finally under control. These residents were able to return home in the early evening.

On the other hand, the residents of the house affected by the fire had to seek refuge with their families. The intervention teams from Enedis and GRDF had to interrupt the gas and electricity supply damaged by the flames. The origin of the loss is said to be accidental.
