Willemeau: The fire starts again in a house next to the fire on the Chaussée de Douai

Monday, around 8 p.m., the Tournai firefighters responded to a gasoline can fire on the Chaussée de Douai, in Willemeau. The fire quickly spread throughout the home, making it completely uninhabitable. Fortunately, the occupant was able to leave the scene and no one was injured.

This Tuesday at the end of the morning, the firefighters were again called to intervene on the Chaussée de Douai because the fire had started again, but this time in the neighboring house. The Picardy Wallonia emergency zone dispatched several vehicles to the scene. “It was probably through the attic that the fire was transmitted from one house to another,” notes fire captain Issam Joudart. It was the inhabitants of this second house themselves who warned the men of the fire, after leaving their home. Fortunately, no injuries were reported but the occupants, Johan Platiau and Christophe Delvallée, will have to be rehoused.

At 12:50 p.m. this Tuesday, the intervention is still in progress. It requires a temporary closure of the roadway to traffic, between the Derasse establishments and the gas pump. The Tournai police zone secures the roadway.
