The video shows the extent of the fire in question. The factory appears to be in flames over most of its surface and the state of the building gives the impression that an explosion has taken place. However, the causes of the accident have not been disclosed. As several local media point out, the damage amounts to a value of almost 80 million euros.

Above all, the entire production of the Aygo X urban crossover and the Yaris is affected. The factory that suffered from the fire supplies Toyota and other car manufacturers plastic components essential to make these two models. For the moment, the Japanese manufacturer is therefore facing a shortage of parts which requires production to be stopped.
