The roof was completely burned when help arrived. They fought until two in the morning to extinguish the disaster with three fire trucks. The action of the helpers made it possible to avoid the spread of fire to the two adjoining houses. Fortunately, no casualties are to be deplored.

“Firefighters have tried to water as little as possible to damage as little as possible, it’s really good. It is now necessary to bring an expert as quickly as possible to know the state of the floors and the house.”

“We lost memories”

The owners of the house have been relocated to the family.

“We have been here for more than 20 years. We have lost memories, but the main thing is that there is no victim. We think we could have been in our bed sleeping … but we’re alive, that’s the main thing.”
