He would have been deceived by the speed of propagation of the fire. Saturday, shortly after 4 p.m., an 82-year-old man was transported by helicopter to the Nantes University Hospital after being seriously burned, report the Loire-Atlantique firefighters.

He had trouble getting around

This man, domiciled in Saint-Philbert-de-Grand-Lieu, had just set fire to his green waste. Probably deceived by the speed of propagation of the fire and suffering from
difficulties to move, the man would not have had time to move back and would have been caught by the flames, explain the firemen.
