The wings of the Moulin Rouge, a Parisian cabaret famous throughout the world, fell during the night from Wednesday to Thursday, firefighters told AFP, confirming information from the BFMTV channel.

No injuries were reported, Paris firefighters said, adding that there was no longer any risk of collapse. The reasons for this fall are currently unknown.

“This is the first time that an accident of this type has occurred since its creation on October 6, 1889,” the Moulin Rouge told AFP, which has “no information” on the cause of this accident. .

“It happened after closing fortunately,” said the same source, indicating that, “every week, the technical management of the cabaret checks the mechanism of the wings of the mill and found no problem.”

The only serious accident that occurred in the temple of cancan dancing was a fire due to work in 1915, according to the cabaret, which had to close for 9 years.

The famous establishment located at the foot of the Montmartre hill, synonymous with crazy Parisian nights with the Lido and cancan dancers, and in front of which thousands of visitors take photos every day, will celebrate its 135th anniversary on October 6.

The Moulin Rouge said it is open every day and presents two shows each evening welcoming 850 visitors, or 600,000 per year.
