BACK TO NEWS
Five people died, including a mother and three children, and eleven were injured in a fire in a Paris suburb (Saint Denis) 17-flat building, dating from the 1930’s, on 6th June. The fire is said to have started on the third floor, possibly in a kitchen, and then spread through the stair well.
Media reports suggest that the building was not well maintained and did not respect safety obligations, again tragically demonstrating the importance of fire safety standards and their application.
