Another jewel of nature is burned and has a large influx of tourists: the Garganta de los Infiernos, in the Valle del Jerte, also in the province of Cáceres, after the forest fire of Las Hurdes, Sierra de Gata and the Parque Nacional de Monfragüe, which continue to be active although with less danger in recent hours.

The Extremadura Fire Fighting Plan (INFOEX) is currently working in the area with four trucks and four checkpoints, and last night means from the UME (Military Emergency Unit) joined the area of ​​the Garganta de los Infiernos, whose origin would have had two outbreaks and was declared in the afternoon-night of Saturday.

As reported by the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Territorial Planning, its evolution is pending, hampered by wind conditions: “It is the fire that is most worrying at the moment,” sources from said body have pointed out.

Located in the heart of the Jerte Valley, in this nature reserve you can see numerous waterfalls and waterfalls, as well as the giant kettles in the area known as Los Pilones.

The new front in this natural area is added to those of Casas de Miravete (Monfragüe) and Las Hurdes, at level 2 of danger, while last night it was deactivated at level 1 in those of Santa Cruz de Paniagua and Torre de Don Miguel, also in the province of Caceres. Work has focused last night on active surveillance and control against possible reactivations. The aerial means are incorporated after dawn.

All Extremadura will remain this Sunday with an orange warning due to high temperatures, which will reach 43 degrees in some parts of the region, which also makes it difficult to control the flames due to possible reactivations, including the force of the wind.
