In statements to the local radio station France Bleu Roussillon, the official acknowledged that it will be a complex investigation, in which they will work without discarding hypotheses.

During the early hours of Sunday to Monday an explosion shook the town in the southern department of Pyrénées-Orientales, bordering Spain, where the raging fire affected several homes.

Firefighters found Tuesday an eighth corps in the rubble, after finding the day before seven dead victims, including two very young children, apparently surprised by the detonation while they slept.

Yesterday, the French Prosecutor’s Office activated an investigation for arson causing death, and one of the theories analyzed is the role played by gas cylinders detected in the basement of one of the buildings.

According to media reports, police specialists are studying closed-circuit cameras located near the site of the tragedy in search of clues.
