Pozzuoli (Naples), September 4 - Firefighting
aircraft as well as ground crews were brought in Wednesday to
fight one major fire raging in the area near Naples and another
that threatened a protected area at Mount Vesuvius.
At the same time, authorities say they charged one person
with arson in connection with a major blaze that threatened
parts of Sardinia earlier in the summer.
Mirko Morle, 24, of Golfo Aranci was charged with a fire
that began in June and destroyed more than 500 hectares of land
on Sardinia.
Investigators said they are still looking for other people
involved in the crime.
Meanwhile firefighters, forest rangers, and volunteers have
been supported by three Canadair firefighting aircraft as they
battle a huge fire in the area of Monte Gauro in a mountainous
area near Pozzuoli.
Causes are not known but authorities have not ruled out
arson.
Some farms and homes are at risk as well as a high-voltage
electrical network.
Fire is threatening protected areas near Vesuvius National
Park, and near Torre del Greco, with smoke from the blaze
visible for several kilometres around.
Smoke is even affecting visibility on the highway linking
Naples and Salerno.
