(ANSA) - Rome, August 17 - Italy's central region of Lazio,
where the capital city Rome is located, suffered 20 separate
forest and brush fires on Friday, according to data released by
the nation's civil protection forces.
Of these, eleven are still raging.
Most of the blazes broke out in the morning in the province
of Rieti, in Montegrottone and in Fara Sabina.
The fire-fighting authorities sent Canadair aircraft to
combat the flames there.
Three separate incidents took place in the province of
Frosinone, including one in Esperia, where two civil protection
helicopters are currently at work, as well as two Canadair
aircraft.
Also damaged was Sant'Elia Fiumerapido, where a helicopter
is counting on the assistance of volunteers to put out the
flames.
Finally, civil protection volunteers are also busy working
to limit the damages in Monte San Giovanni Campano.
The province of Rome was also involved when a fire broke out
in Artena, as well as one in Castel Giuliano in Bracciano.
Fiamignano in the province of Rieti suffered fire-related
damage as well, as did the town of Nepi, in the province of
Viterbo.
