Frightening fire in Bagnara: flames touch streets and homes


By John

The possibility of evacuating some homes was also assessed Bagnara Calabra, in Reggino, in the «Pellegrina» area, due to a vast fire that affected the mountain that rises close to the town center yesterday evening. The flames were fanned by strong winds and showed no signs of abating despite the efforts made by the firefighters for several hours, with the use of ten vehicles and around twenty personnel.

Due to the gravity of the situation, other teams of firefighters from all over the province were on site. In addition to that of Bagnara Calabra, the province of Reggio Calabria was affected by numerous other fires yesterday. The regional relief machine was also activated, with the sending of the mobile column with men and vehicles from Catanzaro.
