At least 13 people have died after a fire ravaged and destroyed a bar in Rouen, the capital of the French region of Normandy, local media report. Most of the victims were reportedly young people attending a birthday party.
The fire started after midnight at a bar where young people had been gathering to celebrate a private birthday party in the northern city of Rouen, the Paris-Normandie newspaper reports. Firefighters responded to the emergency, and have declared 13 people dead so far.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed the initial count of 13 dead and six injured, saying that more than 50 firefighters were battling the blaze in the center of the city, AP reported.
I’m glad France is so sickened by our American “civilization.” They can keep their imported barbarism; I’ll pass on that.
