Monday, September 20, 2021, at around 11:30 p.m., the alarm processing center (118) was notified of a strong release of smoke which was escaping from the roof of the casino in Montreux.
On the spot, fearing a fire, the firefighters set up an important device requiring the complete closure of the rue du Théâtre during the intervention. From their investigations, the firefighters were able to quickly determine that the release of smoke was due to a technical problem with a boiler. The latter released large swirls of smoke from an exhaust duct under the roof of the casino.
All customers and casino employees were evacuated during the firefighters’ response and were able to return to the establishment approximately two hours later. No one was hurt or inconvenienced.
The intervention required the engagement of four mixed patrols from the Association Sécurité Riviera and the Vaud police, firefighters from the SDIS Riviera and a STAR ambulance from Epalinges.
