A few days after the fire that destroyed a summer camp for children in the Massimina area, a garage with 150 campers and the Casalotti local market depot, yesterday the flames returned to Rome and darkened the sky above St. Peter’s . The flames developed in the very early afternoon of yesterday in the northern area of the capital, involving the area of the Pineta Sacchetti and Monte Mario and affected the Pineto park where the first outbreak would have developed, then spread thanks to the hot wind, the the area then in the evening was the scene of the inspection of the mayor Roberto Gualtieri.
“It is a very worrying and vast fire, with multiple triggers, although now of course there will be investigations to verify the possible malicious nature. We await the investigation.” This was said yesterday by the mayor of Rome, Roberto Gualtieri, after the inspection of the Pineto park, which was hit by a vast fire. “We are worried and we are here close to the citizens to deal with this serious emergency. We thank the Fire Brigade and the Civil Protection” for their “great commitment ”, he added.” Obviously, among the general causes there is a wave of unprecedented heat, climatic changes are perceptible to everyone but then in some cases, it has already been ascertained, there is also a malicious hand – he continued -. In this case we do not know yet, but it is very serious and unacceptable that there are those who in such a moment in conditions that favor fires start to start them. I really hope for maximum severity and harshness in the repressive action of anyone who took part in creating these fires “.
