A large fire broke out in Gibilrossa, Italy, which took over three hours to contain. The blaze destroyed hectares of vegetation up to the provincial road 37, causing road closures and difficulties for emergency services. Firefighters, forest rangers, and the civil protection service were all involved in extinguishing the flames, while two helicopters provided aerial support. The fire was deliberately lit in three separate locations, making it challenging to extinguish. Thankfully, there were no damages to nearby homes or injuries to residents. The mayor of Misilmeri believes arsonists are responsible for the fire and condemns their actions. The closure of the provincial road 37 has created difficulties for emergency access, causing longer response times. The mayor promises to address these issues and work towards the revitalization of the affected area.
