possible arson

According to what EL Mundo learned through sources, workers on the ground are looking into the possibility that it could be a deliberate fire and is also related to the fire that devastated a neighboring area last September. Fighting device deployed Benahavs,

In this backdrop, the authorities on Wednesday identified a man who was roaming around the command post located in the area of ​​the ashram with no apparent connection to the troops deployed by the Army. infoca Because according to the counsel witnesses, it was showing a strange attitude.

The fire has put firefighting services on hold for nearly three days and last September the shadow of one that struck the same area and in which a firefighter lost his life inevitably fell on him. Carlos Martinez,

The flames, weather conditions and the geographic location of the land immediately alerted firefighters to the seriousness of what they had on hand and its possible development; In addition, it presented significant similarities with others in its forms and followed the same path.

While it is true that it is still too early to say with certainty that this was the case and other possibilities have not been ruled out, some of the people who had the opportunity to reach ground zero in those first moments claimed to have seen the smoke. Two different sources have been observed. With a distance of about one kilometer between them.

It should also be noted that from the very beginning it has drawn attention to the fact that the spot where the flames erupted is an area that is particularly difficult to reach, through which not even dirt lanes pass And there was no reason for the people in that. Can be found working who may have accidentally started a fire.

As a high voltage line passes through it, it is also thought that a vulture could fall on the cables and literally blow a spark; But the fact that there are two points from which the smoke came out forces us to put that hypothesis to rest. It is very rare, in fact, that the ash has reached so far from where the first focus was, the sources indicated, referring to the power lines.

Another line of investigation is under way to clarify what happened in this new fire. Sierra Bermeja shall relate to the fact that complaints have been received from the guards of the property resin This indicates that in recent times he had stolen several whole gates, he had cut them down and completed them, he specified.
