“The front that went to Las Jarillas is enclosed, but tankers must be placed at dawn to give peace to the city,”

Provincial head of risk management in the province, Claudio Vignetta Chain 3: “The fire stopped at the edge of the property. The wind drops down from the mountains. We will have a hard time ”.
In another area on this large magical front in Punilla, the flames affected more than 700 hectares in Estancia El Rosal, in the Falda del Cañete, forcing a family group of six to evacuate themselves.
The person in charge of the place, Miguel Ángel Medina, said Chain 3 who will be on duty to take care of 150 cows and 20 bulls. “Almost the entire field was consumed. If the flames reach the animals, we will lose everything, he said.

Fire found in Los Quebrachitos (Unquillo)
