The fire of Rianxo (A Coruña) is still active, but its evolution is "favorable"



The forest fire that affects the municipalities of Dodro and Rianxo Coruñeses continues active after sweeping 850 hectares but its evolution is "favorable", says the Ministry of Rural Environment in the first assessment of this Wednesday, so the alert has been deactivated by proximity to homes.

The measurement, the Xunta underlines in the statement, is provisional until, once it is switched off, the surface affected by these flames that began at dusk last Monday is parameterized and, according to the main hypothesis that is handled, by a spark in a high voltage cable.

In addition to Rianxo-Dodro, three other fires are active in Galicia, all of them in the province of Ourense, one with two foci -the sources consulted by Efe point out that it has been provoked- in O Barco de Valdeorras and it is, of these, the largest, with a hundred hectares devastated.

In Calvos de Randín is another of the fires, which has entered through Portugal, with more than 20 hectares burned and affecting a protected natural area, the park of Xurés; while in Chandrexa de Queixa there is the third and last, with a total of 20 hectares affected.
