About twenty new cars parked in a closed parking of a Renault dealer located in Thorez Boulevard in Avion were completely burnt out during the night, at around 2 am.
According to Dominique Ducarin, owner of the concessionary, it was a question of arson, “as footprints were found on the safety barriers.” “They went over 2.50 metre barbed wire fences. They weren’t able to take what they wanted so they started a fire so as not to leave any traces. They pushed one car”, notes Mr Ducari
n, who visited the site at around 2.30, while fire fighters were working with three hoses to put out the flames.
As well as the 20 burnt out vehicles, others were part
ially affected by the flames or the heat. According to Dominique Ducarin, waiting to take stock with his insurer, the damage could amount to at least 500 000 euros.
