The next day is hard on the Saint-Floor field in Shavinigan, Mauritius, where Auberge le Flores was completely destroyed in a fire on Thursday evening.
The fires started at 9pm and firefighters worked through the night trying to bring them under control.
“It’s complicated because it’s a wooden structure, an expanded structure,” explained Franுவாois Saint-Onge, director of communications for the town of Shavinigan.
The ruins attracted many interested people throughout the day. Among them, Ronnie Charles struggled to realize that the inn where he had worked as a cook for more than 30 years was no more.
“I even built it! With my sister-in-law and my sister, ”he stressed.
The company ran into financial problems in 2014 and had to close its doors until it was sold in 2015. After that the activities resumed, but it saw better days.
A true pioneer of regional tourism, the inn has long been the economic machine of the former village of Saint-Flor. In the late 1980s, it welcomed the entire production team of the series Daughters of Caleb.
The cause of the disaster was not yet known Friday evening and the investigation was handed over to Sarat de Quebec.
