The mid-mountain Lognan cable car station in Argentière, near Chamonix, Haute-Savoie, has been on fire since 14:00 local time on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. The Telepherique du Lognan cable car serves Les Grands Montets (10,810 ft), a skiing area famous for its steep and demanding slopes, both on-piste as well as off-piste.
Helicopters have been dropping water in an attempt to quell the blaze. Thankfully, it appears nobody has been seriously hurt.
The restaurant in the station is also affected. In all, almost 5,400-ft² of buildings are in flames.
