Anoia worst hit by forest fires

Anoia is the comarca in the province of Barcelona which has seen the highest number of forest fires this summer. However, of a total of 19 fires, only 4 have burnt more than 0,1 hectares and even the worst one – in Veciana on August 8 -, resulted in damages limited to 6 hectares of trees and farmland.

Compared with the last nine years in Anoia, the number of fires is among the highest, but the area affected is lower than average. On a sad note, as many as 45% of the fires were lit deliberately.
