Italy - Le fiamme, riportano le cronache dei media locali, sono divampate in maniera pressoché istantanea e hanno avvolto nella loro morsa infernale tutto ciò che hanno trovato sulla loro strada, dalle sterpaglie ai canneti.

Forse un mozzicone di sigaretta, forse una lanterna cinese caduta al suolo o rimasta impigliata tra i rami di un albero, potrebbero aver scatenato l'inferno ad Ancona.

Un vasto incendio, secondo le prime indicazioni dei vigili del fuoco, di sterpaglie sta interessando la zona tra Palombella e Posatora.

Attorno alle 4, l'incendio ha recuperato forza, alimentato dal vento e il forte odore di bruciato si è avvertito in tutta la città. Gli agenti della squadra volante di Ancona stanno invece indagando sulle cause, ma sembra certa l'ipotesi dolosa. I residenti della zona avrebbero sentito un boato poco prima di mezzanotte, poi le fiamme.

L'incendio, ben visibile da più parti della città, in un primo momento sembrava di ampiezza maggiore e più pericoloso

Ancona, vast fire at Posatora park

The flames, they record the local media reports, are almost instantaneous and have wound all that they found on their way, from the pits to the reeds, into their infernal vice.

Perhaps a cigarette bite, perhaps a Chinese lantern that fell to the ground or was entangled in the branches of a tree, might have sparked hell in Ancona.

A fiery fire, according to the first indications of firefighters, of spitfire is affecting the area between Palombella and Posatora.

At around 4 o'clock, the fire has recovered power, fueled by the wind, and the strong smell of burnt has been felt throughout the city. The agents of the Ancona flying squad are instead investigating the causes, but it seems certain to be the case. Residents of the area would have heard a boat just before midnight, then flames.

The fire, clearly visible from most parts of the city, at first seemed larger and more dangerous

Tropical peat swamp forests, which once occupied large swaths of Southeast Asia and other areas, provided a significant "sink" that helped remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. But such forests have been disappearing fast due to clear-cutting and drainage projects making way for plantations. Now, research shows peatlands face another threat, as climate change alters rainfall patterns, potentially destroying even forested peatlands that remain undrained.
