Fire Broke out in the Holy Cross Church

Country: France

Date of incident: February 24, 2021

On 24th February, a fire broke out in the Sainte-Croix church and burnt around 20 square meters. Stained glass windows were also blown out. There were damage to the side entrance and the chapel. The parish suspected arson since neither electricity was installed nor the stored candles were used.

According to witnesses, the fire started in a room at the entrance to the oratory: "We have a doubt about the origin. There is no electrical installation there and the candles on the floor were packed. There are regular intrusions. The church is open all the time. We had a fire two years ago in St. Mary's as well. This raises the question of access to heritage."
