    All of these are arson. Nothing ignites by itself, not even with a glass in the sun.
    Perhaps they are the same ones that burned an arcade in Fogueres.

    This fire was announced. There was a mantle of pinnace of 20 ctms. It was a bomb. They should remove the pines and let the cypresses grow on Calvary. They also cover the landscapes of all javea that are no longer seen. Thank you

      The solution when the trees get dirty is to cut them down, not prune them or clean them, but cut them to the chase.
      We go like this.
