More fear than harm at the Domitys Le Château des Plans senior residence in Parthenay, located on Route de Brossard next to the hospital: a fire broke out on Thursday, July 11, 2024, around 1 p.m., in an apartment on the second floor of one of the buildings.

Only this apartment was affected by the flames and no injuries were reported: its occupant, an octogenarian, had gone to the refectory at this lunch time. She will be rehoused in another apartment in the establishment.

The occupant relocated

Nineteen firefighters from the Parthenay, Mazières-en-Gâtine, Vasles and Saint-Maixent-l’École fire stations extinguished the flames, which started in the kitchen, and then ventilated the corridors. The Parthenay company’s gendarmes and Enedis teams were also present on site.

The director of the residence, which currently has 104 residents, Franck Mongin, explains that “The fire started in a temporary apartment, a furnished apartment used for more or less long stays. The teams first evacuated the residents of the ground floor and those of the accommodation close to the fire and the others remained in their apartments.” At around 4 p.m., the firefighters left the scene.
