High risks of fires

High risks of fires. Despite a dip in temperatures, the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var remain on high alert this week due to the continued risk of forest fires.

Although we may now be into the colder autumn months, ongoing dry conditions mean that the threat of forest fires — which have seen the destruction of over 7,000 hectares of land in the region over recent weeks — is ever-present from Menton to Saint Tropez and into the hinterlands of Provence. 

The access to various forestry lands has been prohibited to pedestrians and vehicles, and it is also forbidden to smoke or to light a fire within 200 meters of these zones.
