Fire in Therdonne: the criminal lead to be preferred, according to the mayor

There are events that mark the memory of a municipality. In Therdonne, the fire which completely destroyed the village hall this Friday morning, June 24, will remain in the minds of the inhabitants for a moment.

It all started around 5:30 a.m. this Friday morning, with a neighbor’s report: there was a fire in the village hall. The firefighters are notified and go to the scene with 25 units. They deploy three lances to manage to control the blaze which is caught in the roof of the building. The fire even spreads to the neighboring building, which serves as a municipal workshop.

The incident was contained during the morning. Even if residual hot spots remain.

A complaint lodged

For Martial Duflot, the mayor of Therdonne, “the criminal trail is very strong“. Because the fire would have started from outside the building. “A priori someone came to put a trash can here [ il montre du doigt l’entrée du bâtiment]. And the fire spread to the roof“, relates the city councilor.

He even goes further, evoking a possible arsonist. “For the past month, we have already had two trash fires in the town“, declares the chosen one. An investigation, in progress, will have to determine if this is the case or not.

The mayor announces that he will file a complaint during the day. He must also take a decree of endangerment to prohibit access around the charred village hall. Because the firefighters speak of a risk of collapse for the weakened building.

The party gives way to solidarity

This event disrupts the whole life of the town. “It is the element that allowed us to do many things», laments Martial Duflot. “Just yesterday the whole school was in the village hall“, he recalls.

And the music festival was planned for this Friday evening at this place too. “We had to spend the day preparing, setting up the stage… The fridges are full of food.»

The party is therefore cancelled. But the city councilor can count on the solidarity of the mayors of the territory to cheer him up. Already, while the firefighters were still on site, he received messages of support and to offer help. Whether it’s contacts with an expert, equipment…”It’s quite nice», smiles Martial Duflot.
