IMPORTANT COVERED PARKING FIRE - MARSEILLE (FRANCE) - PPV
On Thursday April 8th at 12:39 p.m., a covered parking fire broke out in the Corbusier park in Marseille (FRANCE).
Huge cloud of smoke, high heat, fire piercing the roof, unstable floors, falling flaming materials ... the intervention was particularly difficult. The order was therefore given to evacuate.
The aerial means engage attacks on the roof. The fire is not accessible from the inside, the virulence of the disaster and the heat which emanate from it limits the action of the soldiers.
Firefighters implement Operational Ventilation techniques by using an EASY 2000 Large Flow firefighting fan to quickly and efficiently extract smoke and cool the volume.
The robotic support, and its ground robot will also accompany the actions.
The robot, armed with a nozzle, goes as close as possible to the disaster.
Thanks to these combined actions, the heat drops, the smokes is reduced and the firefighters become masters of the fire in the early evening.
All night long, crews took turns to complete the extinction. At the height of the intervention, nearly 70 firefighters and about twenty machines were engaged.
