Bedar has been reopened amongst many votes of thanks from all residents and authorities to the brave firefighters who worked so hard to prevent a greater disaster.
Here’s a video from national TVE1:
The fire has now been declared fully controlled, although firefighters continue to make safe the zone.
Only two injuries have been reported, both firefighters suffering from smoke inhalation who were treated at the scene. The civil governor has said that the exemplary coordination between different firefighting units was an example to us all, and certainly prevented greater loss.
The Diputacion (county council
) has already spoken to the Mayor
of Bedar to send men and machinery to start clearing away the debris, and utility
workers are working to restore broken water
and power lines to the villages around Bedar.
