More than one hundred and sixty fires have been burning on the island of Sicily since yesterday afternoon. According to Italian public television Rai, much of it is the result of arson.

In the greater Catania area, firefighting operations have exceeded one hundred and seventy. However, there are fire fronts outside the cities of Enna, Noto, in the wider area of ​​the city of Messina and in Syracuse. "The damage is incalculable," Italian media reported. Sicilian Governor Nelo Mouzoumetsi went so far as to say that "the arsonists should henceforth be sentenced to life imprisonment."

In the city of Catania alone, sixteen fires have broken out in the last XNUMX hours and almost two hundred people have been forced to flee their homes.

The fire also destroyed well-known coastal facilities. This is not the first time this has happened and this indicates that there are likely to be conflicting, strong economic interests. In total, in Lower Italy (mainly Sicily and Puglia) since yesterday firefighters have carried out eight hundred operations to extinguish fires.
