Published on: 08/11/2022 – 09:41 Despite the mobilization of 1,100 firefighters, the fire continues on Thursday to consume hundreds of hectares of forest in Gironde, in the Bordeaux region. More than 6,800 hectares went up in smoke in two days and the scorching temperatures, around 40°C, increase the risk of new fires starting. The fire that has been raging in Gironde since August 9 has burned more than 6,800 hectares of forest in two days. On the front, some 1,100 firefighters are mobilized with particularly unfavorable weather conditions, said Thursday August 11 the prefect of Gironde, Fabienne Buccio. The representative of the State indicates in a press release that reinforcements are expected to fight the fires, adding that the risk of starting fires is “very severe”. “The conditions are particularly difficult: the vegetation and the soil are particularly dry after more than a month without rain,” said the prefect. “The scorching temperatures (40 ° C today) should continue until Saturday and combine with very dry air to create very severe risk conditions for outbreaks of fire”, she adds. The virulence of the fires forced the authorities to evacuate 10,000 people. “It’s a fire that goes very quickly,” said Grégory Allione, president of the National Federation of Firefighters of France (FNSPF), on RTL. #Gironde | Another night of fierce fight against #Fdf forest fires 🙏 Despite the unwavering commitment of 1,100 firefighters, 6,600 hectares have burned.

We have very many recoveries, some of which are not natural”, however regretted the departmental operational center for fire and rescue (Codis) .In Beaulieu-sur-Layon, south of Angers, in the Layon wine region, the fire is also fixed and 150 hectares have been burned. “The fire requires vigilance since, there too, we have unnatural occasions”, according to Codis. More than 500 firefighters, many of whom came from other departments, are still present on these two disasters.
