France 3/Scoop, Feb 28

A fire broke out on Tuesday around 20:00 in a semi-urban area of ​​Saint-Quentin-la-Poterie, Gard.

A factory caught on fire, but it quickly spread, and many houses were threatened. Six people were evacuated from two houses, and the rapid on-site rescue services quickly contained the fire.

The D119 was closed during the fire, and rescue services had to flood the perimeters of the fire to get it under control. A hectare of vegetation was destroyed, but the fire was contained just before it reached the houses.
