The Community of Castilla y Leon has ten fires burning, four allegedly started intentionally, one caused by negligence in work with tractors, and the rest of accidentally caused by the use of machines.
Burgos has recorded an incident that has affected more extension of ground, untied to a fire that has destroyed 119 hectares of cereal in the town of Bugedo, which was triggered at 15.30 pm on Wednesday, apparently by a landslide spark railroad in its passage through the municipality of Bugedo.

The four fires Avila, Arenas de San Pedro, and three others in Poyales del Hoyo, are already exttinguished were, apparently started intentionally and have burned woodlands and pasture.

Negligence in work with the tractor seems to be the origin of the fire recorded in the municipality of Sobradillo, in Salamanca, which has destroyed 2.7 hectares of scrub.

The last fire that started in Castellanos de Castro is controlled and involved the participation of cargo plane on the ground, four helicopters, three autobombas, two crews and thirty tractors.

Firefighters came from from Santa Maria del Campo, Castrojeriz and Burgos.
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
