The Emergency Service 112 of Castilla y León has confirmed the discovery this Monday of the body of a 69-year-old man in a place burned by the Losacio forest fire in the Zamora town of Escober de Tábara, belonging to the municipality of Ferreruela. Neighbors of the town have confirmed that it is a shepherd who began to be missed yesterday afternoon and who was found this Sunday morning by the emergency services.

Around 9:08 a.m. this Monday, the 112 operations room received a call reporting the location of a deceased person in the area called Raya de los Pozones, about four kilometers west of Escober de Tábara, in the municipality of Ferreruela (Zamora), in an area burned by the level 2 forest fire in which a member of the operation fighting the flames also died last night.

The 112 has given notice of this incident to the Zamora Civil Guard and the emergency coordination center for Health Emergencies-Sacyl, which has activated Primary Care health personnel from the Tábara health center.

At the scene, Primary Care health personnel have confirmed the death of the person found in the area, a 69-year-old man.

This is the second fatality of the Losacio forest fire, after a 62-year-old brigade member lost his life on Sunday night during the work of extinguishing the fire. All this has caused the declaration of official mourning in the autonomous community of Castilla y León.
