By Maxence Dourlen
What happens at Leguevinclose to Toulouse ? In less than ten days, no less than 4 fires were reported in the same area to the fire brigade. The last day of this Monday, August 8, 2022. Around 3:00 p.m., several firefighters and gendarmes went to an undergrowth, still near the Forain François Verdier college, to stop a fire starting.
The rapid intervention of the emergency services limited the damage to around 300m2 of vegetation that went up in smoke on the side of the impasse de la Grésigne.
No track is ruled out
An investigation has been opened since the second fire declared in the town at the beginning of August. It is still in the questioning phase at the level of the neighborhood and the various witnesses who can unblock the questions around this worrying phenomenon. Is it incapacity or voluntary acts? “No track is ruled out at the time of the investigation”, say the police to Actu Toulouse.
The investigation must continue in the coming days in order to refine the tracks around these repeated fires. Around 6:00 p.m., a new outbreak of fire was reported in the area. Probably a resumption of flames because of the light wind of the day.
