Italy - Un allevatore di Siniscola (Nuoro) è rimasto ustionato ieri notte durante il vasto incendio scoppiato a Torpè (leggi qui), mentre tentava di mettere in salvo il suo gregge dalle fiamme. Fabrizio Argiolas ha riportato ustioni nel 30 per cento del corpo è stato trasportato dal 118 all’ospedale San Francesco di Nuoro. Nell’incendio sono morti anche diversi animali. Con l’intervento di due Canadair alle prime luci dell’alba, l’incendio è stato spento. Le 30 famiglie evacuate precauzionalmente ieri sera nel quartiere di Villanova sono tornate nelle loro case. Secondo una prima stima sono andati a fuoco 170 ettari in gran parte nel cantiere forestale Su Lidone di Torpé, una delle aree di pregio del parco regionale Tepilora che recentemente ha ricevuto il riconoscimento dell’Unesco.

Il fronte del fuoco, alimentato dal forte vento di maestrale, ha proseguito tutta la notte incontrollato verso Monte Nurres al confine con il territorio di Siniscola e ha creato disagi anche alla circolazione stradale sulla Statale 131 Dcn, a causa delle colonne di fumo. Sono intervenute le forze dell’ordine per regolare il traffico. Sul fronte dell’incendio hanno lavorato per tutta la notte gli uomini della Protezione civile, del Corpo Forestale, Vigili del fuoco, gli operai di Forestas, barracelli e i volontari. Dall’alba sono partite le operazioni di bonifica del territorio. L’incendio, secondo le prime informazioni del Corpo Forestale, sarebbe di origine dolosa: ignoti avrebbero aspettato che il vento si rafforzasse per appiccare il fuoco, sapendo che con il calare della sera le operazioni di spegnimento dal cielo diventano impossibili visto che al buio non intervengono i Canadair e gli elicotteri. Anche oggi è una giornata di allerta massima e il territorio è presidiato per scongiurare che le fiamme possano di nuovo ripartire.

Try to save the flock from the fire, breeder wounded in Siniscola

A breeder of Siniscola (Nuoro) was burned last night during the vast fire in Torpè (see here) while trying to save his flock from the flames. Fabrizio Argiolas reported burns in 30 percent of the body was transported from 118 to the San Francesco di Nuoro hospital. Several animals died in the fire. With the intervention of two Canadair at the early lights of dawn, the fire was switched off. The 30 families evacuated precautionally last night in the Villanova neighborhood returned to their homes. According to a first estimate, 170 hectares have been fired in large part in the Torpé Su Lidone forest site, one of the premium areas of the Tepilora Regional Park, which has recently received UNESCO's recognition.

The front of the fire, fueled by the mighty wind of the maestrale, continued all night uncontrollably toward Mount Nurres at the border with the Siniscola territory and also created discomforts to road traffic on State Road 131 because of the smoke columns. Law enforcement intervened to regulate traffic. On the front of the fire, the men of the Civil Protection, the Forestry Corps, the Fire Brigade, the Forestas workers, barracks and volunteers worked all night. From dawn began land reclamation operations. The fire, according to the first information of the Forestry Corps, would be of arrogant origin: ignorants would have expected the wind to be strengthened to fire, knowing that with the fall of the evening shutdowns from the sky become impossible since in the dark Canadair and helicopters intervene. Even today it is a day of maximum alert and the territory is guarded to prevent the flames from resuming.

Portugal is to reduce the number of eucalyptus groves after the highly flammable plant was blamed for last month's deadly forest fires.
 

Parliament voted for the measure Wednesday as part of ongoing forest law reforms that started in April, before the blaze in the central Pedrogao Grande region that killed 64 people and injured more than 250.

Prime Minister Antonio Costa last week urged measures to prevent a repeat catastrophe, while also highlighting the challenges of forest redevelopment.

"We can't refuse to curb the growth of eucalyptus because we're worried about its impact on the paper industry," he said last week, referring to a sector that represents 4.9 percent of Portuguese exports.

Eucalyptus is Portugal's most widespread forest plant, according to the country's Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests.

But it is cited as a cause of that lay waste annually to around 100,000 hectares of vegetation.
