Five teams, two of which from Pescara and one from Ortona, together with a helicopter from the Pescara Fire Brigade’s Flight Department that carried out numerous water jumps, worked for hours near via Piaggio, managing to tame the flames .
The fire of scrub and uncultivated vegetation spread over about 4 hectares of land in the vicinity of a Walter Tosto factory, in via Grandi Achille. The alarm was raised around 4.30pm. The police are also on site.
The intervention prevented the spread of the fire inside the Wts7 plant, where there were oxygen cylinders and flammable gases that were removed to avoid exposure to heat.
There were no injuries, while some empty tanks deposited in the external area pertaining to the Wts 7 plant were damaged.
