A massive fire has broken out in an industrial area in Cergy, northwest of Paris. Fire officials told RT France that the fire engulfed the area close to a Louis Vuitton warehouse.

Fire brigades rushed to the scene of a massive fire at Avenue de l'Ados in Cergy in the Val-d'Oise department on Monday.

Seven people were injured in the fire, according to radio broadcaster France Bleu. One person with serious burns was transported to the hospital in neighboring Pontoise.
