Fire Sunday in the municipal area of Sezze, and not only for the temperatures that have put in difficulty especially the elderly and children, with the thermometer even reached 38 degrees.
We are talking about two large fires that have developed in the municipal area, even if several kilometers apart.
The largest in Sezze Scalo. A fire that affected a couple of hectares of vegetation along the new 156 near the railway overpass, and of which the origin is also known. In fact, the flames broke out from a car, an Audi station wagon, parked on the side of the road. The driver realized that something was wrong and stopped the vehicle on the platform. Evidently a short circuit, started by the engine, set the car on fire and it was totally destroyed. A tall column of smoke rose from the middle and, due to the wind, it didn’t take long for the flames to reach the adjacent field. Surely if Anas, who is the manager of the road section, had followed the legal requirements by cleaning the edge of the carriageway for two meters, things would have been different. The fact is that the cars of the firefighters and the Lupi dei Lepini Civil Protection were brought to the place, together with the civil protection teams of Roccagorga who managed to get the better of the stake.
Almost at the same time, an olive grove in Chiesa Nuova, in Suso, went up in flames.
Given the concomitance with the other arsonist event, only the Environmental Surveillance Volunteers could be brought to the place who, helped by the residents who came for the occasion, took almost two hours to get the better of the stake.
In short, the problem of lack of land maintenance, whether it is the responsibility of public companies or private citizens, continues to cause disasters in the Sezze area.
