The tasks of extinguishing the Sierra Bermeja fire, which has calcined almost 10,000 hectares, by no means have they concluded. During the past night 70 forest firefighters INFOCA have continued working together with 3 environmental agents and 1 extinguishing technician, supported by 5 fire engines, a Meteorology and Transmissions Unit and a Medical Unit.
Although there is no longer any chance of the fire spreading, work continues on the perimeter, which has exceeded 80 kilometers, for its total extinction.
Meanwhile, the Forest Fire Investigation Brigade yesterday made the reconstruction of the facts and is working on the drafting of the expert report, which will officially determine the causes of the fire. Initially, everything indicates that it has been intentional, although the expert report must corroborate it.
For the elaboration of technical-expert report, We have had the observations of the group of forest firefighters who went to extinction in the first moments. Likewise, the agents of Menvironment are conducting ocular inspections to determine possible causes of fire start.
