As of mid-afternoon, this Thursday, September 22, 2022, several outbreaks of fires were detected especially around Bazas in Captieux and Pompejac.

If Pompéjac is already circumscribed, Captieux’s fire is ongoing.

The Captieux forest fire broke out in a place called Meloches. For now, this requires seven combat assets that are already in place, as well as air assets such as the Charlie 33 (C33). The mission of the helicopter is to observe the area, inform and coordinate the means deployed on the ground and in the air.

Two hectares have already burned

A command post was established to oversee operations from Captieux. Two hectares of forest have already been destroyed.

Forty firefighters at work

According to the Gironde firefighters, the situation is favorable thanks to the help. That’s about forty firefighters. Captieux barracks, Saint-Symphorien, Préchac, Grignols, Monségur, Cadillac, Saint-Macaire, Bernos and Langon are on the scene.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
