An arson has been reported in the choir of a French church
On March 16 around 3 p.m., a resident of Mussidan in the Dordogne warned the emergency services that smoke was coming from the church.
The firefighters intervened quickly and extinguished the fire which blackened the (modern) altar and part of the choir. Volunteers worked on the repair.
“The scene leaves no room for doubt: the fire was started on purpose. Surveillance cameras dominating the forecourt and facing Rue Gambetta were able to provide valuable information to the investigators.
Thursday, March 17, a man was taken into custody and came out quickly. According to the police, the man would suffer from psychiatric disorders“.
