During Tuesday night and today, hundreds and hundreds of images were released about the fires in Chubut province, which caused outrage in the context of protests against the megaminy. After the fires, local police reported about 200 homes destroyed by fire and 12 missing persons who, as reported by Commissioner Miguel Gómez in dialogue with Infobae, are all from the town of El Hoyo.And clarified, seeking to calm the situation: «We want to be cautious about this issue. It is true that people are missing, but that also does not mean that they have been hit by the flames or that their disappearance was directly related to the fires.»
Now, with that number of homes on fire, Gómez indicated that together with the Special Operations Center they are carrying out the task of referring all homeless families to a new place: «At the moment, the people who lost their homes were relocated at different points. From family or friends’ homes, to schools, NGOs and club pavilions.» On the other hand, while police are still investigating whether the fires were intentionally arson or if they were in accordance with an accident, Juan Cabandié, the Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development, said that «whoever did so knew how to do it». In this tune, President Alberto Fernández reported that the national government is already acting on the area to combat fire.
