Sunday, November 8, 2020, around 4:30 a.m., a witness informed the cantonal police station of detonations from the college of Begnins. On the spot, the first gendarmerie patrol observed a strong release of smoke coming from the premises of the secretariat of the school. Firefighters responded and were able to contain the blaze. In the meantime, the couple of tenants residing above have been evacuated preventively. The road from St-Cergue to Begnins had to be closed for the purposes of the intervention. Initial investigations indicate that the fire was of criminal origin. This establishment had already been the victim of similar facts the previous weekend. The perpetrator (s) have not yet been identified.
The public prosecutor on duty opened a criminal investigation, entrusting the research to the inspectors of the Security Police of the Western Judicial Region, supported by their colleagues from the Forensic Police Brigade.
This event required the intervention of firefighters from the SDIS Nyon Dôle and Gland Serine, 4 mixed patrols from the gendarmerie and the Morges region police, as well as inspectors from the security police.
