It is a little over 1 a.m. on the night of Wednesday to Thursday August 11, when the firefighters of Montataire are engaged on a garbage fire. This first fire concerned five to six large volume bins. They are located on a dead end public road and close to vegetation.

«During this intervention, stones were thrown at the firefighters without reaching them.“says Éric de Valroger, president of Sdis de l’Oise. The personnel engaged nevertheless extinguished the fire. Given the high risk of spreading to the surrounding vegetation, but also to a residential building.

Second fire, second cobblestone

Shortly after, another fire was reported. This time on a passing path. It’s still trash. And the scene begins again. “The projectiles hit the pump-tonne with three visible impacts on the bodywork», Specifies the president of Sdis de l’Oise.

There too, the fire was brought under control before the firefighters withdrew, to avoid any risk of propagation. No firefighters are reported injured. A complaint was filed by the Sdis.

«It is absolutely intolerable to attack those who, on a daily basis, have the mission of rescuing people and property.adds Eric de Valroger.
