The phenomenon appeared, paradoxically, with the last downpour when a girl was burned with a piece of land was burning under his feet.
Trying to locate the root of the flames have not found anything, just more fire and more smoke, as Tilve says Antonio, a member of this community.
The area has been cordoned off by authorities while trying to environmental agencies to establish the causes of this strange phenomenon where the earth burns.
The Committee for Prevention and Attention of Disasters, made up of several District agencies on alert at the odd smoke and fire, which remains concerned at least 15 families living in the sector.
If anyone cares to translate the actual words spoken in this video, It would be much appreciated!
We received from our regular reader Mr. space-cakes the following translation:
The Secretary of interior disrticts has revealed details about a series of studies, performed by the Facultad de Química de la Universidad de Cartagena after the apparition of fire and smoke in a part of the highway belonging to the sector of “17 de Mayo”, from the neighborhood of Henequén.
(old man speaks)
“Yesterday, experts and firemen came here to take samples from the ground; samples which diagnosed positive in Phosphorous. There is no explanation to why is there is phosphorous found on the floor, since this area does not belong to the sector in which garbage is stored and treated in their respective facilites. Either someone threw phosphorous or unintentionally leaked it around this area. The recommendation was to make a study of the area of extent in which the phosphorous may reach and its depth as well to be able to proceed to remove the chemicals.”
The people that live near keep on protesting because of the damages this event is causing, not only to their health but also to the earth.
“We have to use masks since this smell is so putrid and at the same time acidic, that even the stink reaches our homes and stays impregnated. At least, last night was a night we couldn’t sleep due to the smell.”
At the mean time, the mayor’s office of the town has ordered to move the affected population away until the matter is settled, even though there hasn’t been yet any cases of serious health damage.
(Edgar Arrieta, mayor)
“initially, the experts reccommended to close the affected area from the public, to also not manipulate the affected parts of the earth and finally that the affected area should also be covered with “very dry sand” while the experts run their tests to discover how deep in the ground is the phosphorous.”
And ambulance and a firemen team has been settled in this small neighborhood in case if any emergency comes up.
Thanks Mr. space-cakes
