The number of fires spread throughout Sicily continues to increase. This afternoon (Tuesday 5 July) a team of firefighters from the Trapani detachment intervened in an area around Erice, in the Pegno district, for a fire that enveloped heaps of brushwood.
To extinguish the flames, particularly stoked and present on the road towards Crocci, a hamlet of Valderice, it was also necessary to use a back-up tanker, as well as a fire brigade pick-up.
The intervention to put out the fire lasted about an hour.
The intervention of the volunteers of the Civil Protection, the staff of the Forestry and the Carabinieri who started the checks to establish the causes of the fire was also timely.
