Incendie dans le Grand Brûlé- Imazpress 25.01.2019

The fire, whose cause remains undetermined, which began January 20 in the "Grand Brûlé", on the east flank of Piton de La Fournaise continues to progress this January 25.

More than 2,000 hectares of vegetation have gone up in smoke, and the flames are 200 meters from the RN2 linking St. Rose to St. Philippe; it was closed in both directions. This Saturday, January 26th, the fire has passed the other side of the road in two places, but remains under control.

Fanned by the winds, the fire is likely to spread further and reach homes and forest in Tremblet, with human and ecological consequences.

The fire also threatens GPS and seismological stations of the Piton de la Fournaise, equipment of between 20 and 25,000 euros. . Two of them are potentially under the threat of this disaster. The first is located 400 meters south of the fire. The second is further north and is more exposed to the threat of flames.
"We are still receiving data, which means that they are still out of danger," says Aline Peltier, director of the Volcanological Observatory of Piton de la Fournaise.
