According to the information gathered, from the garbage that was being burned, the flames began to spread until they reached a plot with sock, where the fire expanded at a higher speed, so that the ‘tragahumo’ came out aboard two units to more effectively combat the accident and for the proximity of the flames to a standing corn plot. Upon arrival at the site, they acted in time to quell the fire and prevent the fire from reaching two standing corn plots on the side. On the other hand, last Friday the firefighters of Angostura attended two accidents, one of them pasture bales in Alhuey, Angostura, and the other in coordination with Guamúchil Firefighters in El Salitre, Salvador Alvarado.The event that occurred in Alhuey was recorded around 15:30 hours and in this one were burned between 300 and 350 bales of corngrass and alfalfa , as well as part of some pens, while animals, more grass bales and a truck were in danger. It was reported that the fire spread and covered part of the riverbank towards La Costera, where a few meters away there were other pens and more pasture bales, but fortunately the flames were quelled before they caused further damage.
