In France, 9 out of 10 fires are caused by humans. In the event of drought, a heatwave or strong winds, it only takes an unextinguished cigarette end thrown from a car window or on the roadside, or a spark from machinery used in a field or garden, to destroy vast stretches of vegetation in just a few minutes.
A simple act, but one that can have seriously destructive consequences for nature, for housing, for businesses and campsites, that may kill animals and even pose a threat to human life.

We remind you that during this period of drought, any use of fire is prohibited in the classified massif of Caroux including the Gorges d'Héric (including cigarettes).
