Two forest fires within 24 hours in Arico hills

Once might be accident. Twice, in the same place, within 24 hours? A fire has broken out in the hills of Arico where one was extinguished only yesterday morning by emergency services. It was being dealt with, indeed, when I was in the 112-Canarias hub myself, and emergency services are again fighting a blaze with land and air teams in a low pine forest area, the Cabildo says. At least it’s not high summer when such a fire can take hold in minutes and cause widespread damage, but it’s hard to avoid the conclusion that an arsonist is wreaking havoc for the emergency services right now.
