Smoke Rises From Chemical Plant Fire in Paris Suburb

Smoke was seen rising into the sky north of Paris on May 13 amid a fire at a chemical plant in Bezons.

Nicolas Bougeard, a local official, said the fire was burning at a chemical plant “specializing in metallization”. No injuries had been reported, according to local media.

Xavier Pericat, the first deputy mayor of the Argenteuil commune, said the fire was in Bezons, adding that gas in the area had been shut off by fire crews. Credit: @Relaxxx_JR via Storyful
