A fire in the area known as ‘La Aldea’ area has consumed vegetation and threatens to reach Aguakán wells and electricity cables.

At the state level, there are 14 forest fires currently active in Quintana Roo, which to date have consumed 4,350 hectares, with the municipality of Bacalar being the one that registers the greatest impact with a total of 2,736 hectares consumed.

In Cancun, the “La Aldea” fire is located at kilometer 291 of the Mérida-Cancún highway.

This dangerous conflagration threatens to reach the collection well number four that the Aguakán concessionaire company has in the area, as well as the laying of electric power cables.

The fire covers a wide area and in the mornings, the smell can be felt in the southern part of Cancun.

In the fire area, a large number of glass bottles were found on the floor, which causes the “magnifying glass effect” that generates forest fires.
