Due to the strong wind and high temperatures, a vegetation fire spread inside a depot of agricultural vehicles, paints and solvents in the Papaniciaro area in the north of Crotone: thirty firefighters with about ten vehicles have been at work from about 12.40. Squads deployed to defend other nearby industrial facilities.
After several hours of exhausting work, the firefighters of the Crotone Command concluded the extinguishing operations. Due to the very high temperatures developed by the fire inside the shed, part of the structure and the covering roof collapsed.
Currently the firefighters are engaged in operations of removal, cooling and reclamation for the complete extinction of the last remaining outbreaks.
No injuries have been reported.
