Plumes of black smoke seen near Orly airport in Paris, France. The fire is at a marketplace in Paris close to the airport. Emergency crews are responding to a large fire at Rungis International Market in the Chevilly Larue Commune of Paris on September 25, 2022.
The world’s second-largest fresh produce market caught fire in Paris on Saturday, blanketing the French capital in a dense cloud of smoke visible from kilometers away.
The blaze, which originated in the Rungis International Market’s 7,000-square meter warehouse, broke out around midday. The inferno spewed a dense cloud of smoke into the sky, which could be seen creeping several kilometers over the center of the city.
A spokesman for the Paris fire service told the Associated Press that no casualties were reported, and that the fire was brought under control by 100 firefighters and 30 fire engines. The cause of the blaze is unknown but will be investigated, the spokesman said.
Located near Paris’ Orly Airport, the Rungis International Market employs more than 12,000 people and, according to its website, supplies fresh meat, vegetables and other produce to 18 million consumers, including the city’s restaurants, hotels and cafes.
The blaze comes after a spate of fires at food distribution centers across the USA in recent months, which some conservative commentators have suggested were started deliberately to threaten the country’s food supply.
However, the National Fire Protection Agency said that there has been no significant increase in fires at food facilities this year.

Our company, Insect, for example, with more than 300 technology patents and completely unique AI-driven agricultural processes, is building the first fully automated vertical insect farm… Read more »
Sacre blue…didn’t know cucumbers, onions, and lettuce were so flammable. Not an accident…Wonder what Macron’s husband thinks of this?!
Due to Macron,s far-right capitalist policies workers in all branches of the service industries like Electricity /Gas/ etc have been out in the streets in protests at his policies getting brutally attacked by armed French police -losing eyes – broken bones etc .
Its no co-incidence that 2 years ago the same food wholesaler -Rungis – had their electricity cut off due to protest strikes and the protesters have said they are stepping up protests again–it will be interesting as to what they officially state as the cause of the fire.
State arson propaganda?
