The bar-restaurant O relax, located at Aullenein L’Alta Rocca, was destroyed last night, Saturday May 21, by arson. The firefighters were called around midnight: “When we arrived on the scene, the establishment was completely ablaze”, explains the Corse-du-Sud departmental fire and rescue operational center. No injuries were reported.
A tag “A droga Fora” found at the scene
A tag “A droga Fora” was found at the scene. “The owner who is Corsica has not yet filed a complaint, declares the parquet floor of Ajaccio. The criminal origin of the fire is of course beyond doubt. Neighbors heard an explosion. We do not know at this time if this is the cause of the fire or its consequence. The investigation was entrusted to the Sartene Research Brigade.
In the village, the fire arouses amazement: “The fire was probably lit from the outdoor terrace of Le Relax and spread to the old building, it was completely extinguished around 3 a.m. This is an establishment that opens part of the year only. We are obviously all very surprised, it is quite incomprehensible”comments Pierre Castellani, the mayor of the village.
