The Canadair above camping in Bormes-les-Mimosas

Christian Veyre, a reporter from Rennes is currently on holiday in Bormes-les-Mimosas where a massive fire caused the evacuation of thousands of campers.

“The scene is pretty surreal on the beach this morning,” says Christian Veyre. From Rennes and currently on holiday in Bormes-les-Mimosas in a residence.

“Tourists filming Canadair aircraft which multiply the water pickups a few hundred meters away and refugees camping evacuated tonight who have no other place to go. Families who are there with their their strollers. “

He saw flames “jumping the road”

Last night, he saw flames “jumping the road” and come dangerously close to the campsite. “Thousands of people had decided to leave the place. This morning I have seen many who have decided to return home and not stay put.”

This afternoon, many beachgoers have packed up as the hill was ablaze and the sky turned red and black. “There is no siren but here we move and we are not alone”, describes a Christian Veyre away from any panic atmosphere.
