Three fires broke out in a week in the underground car park of a building in Créteil (Val-de-Marne), where officials from the Ministry of the Interior and the police headquarters live.
A first outbreak of fire, on December 22 around 11 p.m., damaged a dozen cars and a few motorcycles, and led to the evacuation of the tenants, according to a source close to the investigation.
The second, December 29 in the early morning, caused less material damage, three motorcycles burned.
The third, Wednesday morning around 10 am, did not cause any particular damage and would be accidental a priori, qualified a source close to the investigation. The latter aims to determine the exact causes of these fires and their possible link but no lead is currently privileged, said the same source.
