a farm on fire, its occupant missing


This Sunday, January 17, the firefighters have been intervening since 7 p.m. for a fire which broke out in a 400 m2 farm located in the town of Pont-d’Héry.

The living area was completely on fire when help arrived. The occupant of the farm, an 84-year-old man, went missing on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. He was probably inside when the incident occurred.

The intervention, which mobilized thirty firefighters from Arbois, Salins, Andelot, Champagnole and Poligny, was carried out in particularly difficult conditions due to the weather (snow), night and complicated access to a particularly isolated dwelling.

For the water supply, the firefighters had to connect to the Furieuse River.

The research of the octogenarian cannot begin until the fire is extinguished.
