PostSubject: Military practice causes devastating fire in France   Sat Aug 01, 2009 3:50 pm



One of France's worst fires for three years has raged on the eastern outskirts of Marseille burning dozens of homes.

The wildfire caused after military practice shelling hit the eastern Trois-Ponts suburb of the southern city, forcing the evacuation of scores of residents.

The fire moved down a hill outside the city and threatened the Trois-Ponts district where residents sprayed water on the outside of their houses before they moved out. People in neighboring La Barasse also left their homes, although local authorities said no evacuation order had been issued.

A thick black smoke swirled around the district and many residents angrily criticized the French Army which had staged the artillery training at its Carpiagne camp just before the fire started.

Regional Prefect Michel Sappin confirmed that the blaze had been started by the shelling, lashing out at the "imbecilic" action that had led to "an annoying and serious" situation in a zone close to a city and saying he was "exasperated."

"In such weather conditions, with high winds, the army should refrain from carrying out shelling practice," he said.
