The 12,000 people who had to leave their homes or hotels due to the Bormes-les-Mimosas fire were on Thursday preparing for their second night in makeshift reception centres.
But the locals have shown solidarity and helped them to feel at home.

France's Civil Security Department set up six centres in the area, complete with camp beds, food, water and hygiene products.
And local residents donated further items such as soap, towels, toothbrushes and spare clothes. Many families have even offered to welcome evacuees into their homes. A local pizzeria sent a pizza delivery for the affected families and volunteers at one of the centres, and psychological support is also being offered to those affected by the blaze.
The page has been filled with offers of support, from spare rooms, food, children's toys or just someone to talk to, while volunteers at the centre shared requests of items which were needed.
British actress Joan Collins was among those visiting the region when the fire took hold, as was the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Both were rehoused with assistance from French authorities.
