Guylain Schmied is a liberal nurse. His office is located on the Place de la République in Noyon. “When the fire happened, I was present. I was coming out of a patient’s house who lives nearby. I came back to see if there was anyone still inside, before moving my car and taking my scooter to leave the area. When we saw that the roof was burning, we evacuated. In my premises, nothing burned, but everything was drowned”, confides the nurse after the fire that ravaged Sarrazin’s residence on Wednesday, August 3. But his activity should not suffer too much from this. “For 98% of my working time, I go to my patients’ homes, he details it. So I will be able to continue.
