Emmaus Chinon goes up in flames! Monday 24 October 2022 - in the evening

The inner open-shed part of the Emmaus charitable installation in Chinon-St.Lazare was destroyed by flames on Monday.  Emmaus, a Church organisation, runs markets for house clearance items with the funds received going to Charity. Most of us have visited the institution, partly for fun, partly to find interesting old things of all sorts. No one was hurt or injured, thank goodness. Here we see several branches of the local fire brigades combatting the flames.

Accident? Arson?
