Funeral parlour destroyed by fire

France 3/Scoop, May 19

Funeral parlours are in the news again. This time, a building in Saint-Alban near Toulouse was destroyed by a fire. 

The employees who were in the building at the time of the fire, had just enough time to remove three deceased people in their coffins, as well as escape safely themselves.

The fire fighters managed to put out the fire before it spread elsewhere, but the building was completely destroyed.

Initial investigations suggest that there are no suspicious reasons for the fire.
