After 832 hectares were burning for two days in Santa Rosa National Park, the flames were controlled by Forest Fire SINAC-Guanacaste Conservation Area, Fire Department, ICE and volunteer brigades.
The forest fire was controlled last night, after the fire brigade sent more help to the workers deployed by the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Telecommunications (Minaet).
Wildland firefighters will be working today and tomorrow in the area and in surveillance of two areas where the fire should reach the River Bats and Mairena River within the park.
Despite the difficult terrain and fire behavior, the Coordinator of the National Wildland Fire, Mr. Luis Diego Roman Madriz noted and recognized field work and efforts given by all staff who were involved in the care of the forest fire, and had the support of other institutions and volunteer brigades that succeeded in making an effective team work.
While Minaet workers, along with volunteers from the first day were in the area, firefighters could not move until last night, after finishing their work to contain the fire that burned over 4,000 hectares in area Flamingo.
