According to what was reported on Sunday evening, at eight in the evening, nearly one hundred hectares were destroyed in Forbe progress. According to the province of Isere, the deterioration of the situation in the late afternoon of Sunday led to the evacuation of four small villages, or 130 people.

Four Kinder helicopters, two Civil Security helicopters and two Dash bombers arrived in the area to support one hundred firefighters on the site, who during the first two nights of the fire provided early protection to two businesses and homes “without these under direct threat,” the prefecture added.

“Four hamlets have been evacuated in total, three in Voreppe and one in La Sure-en-Chartreuse. 130 people have been evacuated from all hamlets at the moment,” she added, adding that residents had been invited to go to two assembly points in Voreppe and in the town of Pommiers- La Placette nearby.

On Sunday at 10 p.m., the fire slowed its progress and stabilized the situation, according to Dauphin Libre.

The fire spread on Sunday, August 7, and went down in less than an hour toward County 1075, driven by strong winds. The road is closed in both directions between Voreppe and La Buisse as a precaution and to allow emergency services to intervene.

The process will continue due to the presence of flames on the first rock bar. And we can’t access it. “We must ensure the safety of our responders,” Commander Philippe Lutender, head of the firefighting operation, explained on Saturday in France’s Bleu Isère.
