Big fire north of San Jose del Cabo!


Santiago - The oasis area of this community, 52 kilometers north of San Jose del Cabo, has been under fire and the support of firefighters from Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo has been provided to confront this large fire.

There were active flames in up to four different areas and until five o'clock in the afternoon it was known that the fire was already under control in the perimeter.

The wind dragged the remains of dry branches that, like burning coals, dispersed the fire in the lagoon, which raised columns of smoke that could be seen as far as Todos Santos and even in San José del Cabo.

It is known that part of the town has been left without electricity, due to damage to the lines surrounding the fire area, so they are requesting support from CFE.

Several videos have been shared on Facebook, describing the serious damage caused by this conflagration.

State Civil Protection reports that at the moment only material damages have occurred, since the nearest houses were evacuated.
