Haute-Loire. Couple grateful for outpouring of solidarity after house fire

Thursday April 11, at 11 a.m., the owner of a house in the Crouzillhac district, in Tence, called for help. On the phone, he is panicked: a fire has just broken out in his home, first in the garage, before spreading to the living rooms.

The firefighters couldn’t do anything to save the house.

Firefighters arrived quickly on the scene, but they had difficulty putting out the particularly violent fire. Despite their efforts, the home of the Tençois couple was completely destroyed. They encountered three major obstacles in their mission: highly flammable wooden floors, an unfavorable wind and the presence of a fuel oil tank which had just been filled.

Small consolation, if the house is destroyed, a large part of the furniture and equipment that was inside the house was able to be preserved.

A vast outpouring of solidarity among the villagers

Immediately, the next day, the misfortune of this couple, who had to be rehoused, aroused compassion and a surge of solidarity in the village. The Rando du Haut-Lignon association, of which the victims are members, is organizing a call for donations by installing a ballot box in the town hall. A request which was followed by effects.

“More than this financial assistance, knowing that you are surrounded in this way is the best support”

Thursday May 9, the couple wanted to thank the donors via The Tribune – Progress : “Known and anonymous, we would like to express our gratitude to you for this outpouring of solidarity and generosity. We were very pleasantly surprised, even a little embarrassed, to receive this unexpected jackpot. This will allow us to meet our urgent needs. Since this trauma, we have been fortunate to be well supported by our friends, our neighbors, all of you. But more than this financial assistance, knowing that you are surrounded in this way is the best support. »
