CThe couple bought this old house a few months ago in Peguencourt (Hots-de-France) for Rs. Joseph-Paulis. He carried out important tasks inside. Saturday night, he lost everything. The door of their house suddenly collapsed at midnight. Those present (four children and four adults) were quickly evacuated by emergency services. As a precautionary measure, the house next door was also evicted, according to reports The Voice of the North.
According to the first elements, this sudden collapse seems to be related to the work carried out on a building located next to the house. We would have dug a little deeper, it would have weakened the house next door and the cable would have collapsed. Heavy rains over the past few hours, along with waterlogged soil, have accelerated things. Cracks were also found in the house.
