It is under control by the firefighters, but obviously a column of smoke has risen which could create risks from an environmental and health point of view. Listen to Arpa and the Prefecture, it is recommended to citizens, pending the results of the analyzes that will have to be made on the impact of the event, to keep the windows closed and, if not absolutely necessary to stay at home”. “The recommendation applies all the more to the schools and educational institutions of the city: it is important that the children remain in the classroom with the windows closed”, concludes Canelli.
