Due to the high temperatures, the fire spread to the Serra della Pizzuta nature reserve. The perpetrator was identified by regional forest rangers patrolling the area. The responsible individual is a 60-year-old livestock farmer and owns a portion of the forested area that was affected by the fire. Multiple forest ranger teams were deployed to extinguish the fire.
