Brifor controlled burnings in Ifonche area over next few days

Ifonche was where the horrendous 2012 fire started, and today again we might see smoke in the area between Taucho and Arona. This time, however, it is a case of controlled fire prevention burnings by the forestry brigade, Brifor, to clear away the post-harvest stubble and as a training exercise for the unit. The controlled burnings will be carried out over the next several days, and an extinction helicopter will be included in the training so it will all look very realistic, but Brifor assures the public that there is no cause for any alarm.
