They stabilize the fire of Miraflores and stop the advance of La Granja to Madrid



The firefighters of the Community of Madrid have advanced this morning in the fight against the two open fires at the Royal Site of San Ildefonso-La Granja (Segovia), in which the flames have been prevented from reaching the Community of Madrid, and in Miraflores de la Sierra, which is stabilized.

Thus, the evolution is "favorable" in the two fires, although "it works with the same intensity", "without lowering the guard", as reported by the Community of Madrid in its Twitter account.

This Sunday, the Community of Madrid activated level 1 of the Emergency Plan against forest fires, while the Junta de Castilla y León declared level 2 dangerous because the fire was found at the border of the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park.

In a video on this social network, the Director of Emergencies of the Community of Madrid, Luis Villaroel, has reported that "work all night at the top of the summits has resulted" since "it has prevented the fire from Segovia will penetrate the Community of Madrid. "

"That is being consolidated and now it will be reinforced with the air means it is not possible to discard that the situation is reproduced again by a new front of the zone of Segovia", it has warned.

As for the fire originated in Miraflores de la Sierra, he has assured that it is "stabilized" and the troops have worked "intensely" on "small regrowths".

Likewise, the aerial means that are "lowering the temperature" of the entire perimeter have already been incorporated into the work of extinction.

Villaroel has reported that they expect this fire to be "controlled" this morning.

On the other hand, the M-611 road continues on Monday cut between Miraflores de la Sierra and Puerto de la Morcuera due to the fire that began on Sunday in the municipality of Madrid and threatens the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park.

The Madrid Security and Emergency Agency also urges citizens to avoid "as far as possible" walking or exercising in the National Park, in order to "facilitate" the work of the means of extinction.

The fire, which has three foci, originated around one o'clock in the afternoon on Sunday, and has coincided with another originating around two in the afternoon at La Granja (Segovia).

Until the command post in Rascafría, the acting president of the Community of Madrid, Pedro Rollán, approached this Sunday, who highlighted the "titanic" work of firefighters.
