Large fire in textile shop Richbond in Casablanca (videos)

The fire broke out yesterday on the top floor of the headquarters of textile shop Richbond in Ain Sebaa, Casablanca, where the workshop and the showroom of the textile shop are housed.

The fire broke out on the top floor which mainly served as a workshop and storage space. The approximately 30 employees were working at the time the fire broke out on the lower floors. Some employees tried to extinguish the fire in the first instance itself yet, but when it became clear that this succeeded they could do nothing else than wait for the fire department.

All workers could secure the property abandoned, some with choking phenomena by smoke inhalation.  They got extra oxygen and are moved to the hospital for medical check-ups.
