This is how the mountain remains after the passage of fire


Calcined trees, dead animals, scorched earth… It is the devastating image left by the passage of fire in the mountains of Tenerifea fire forest that originated last Thursday and that since then has devastated more than 2,400 hectares of four municipalities in the north of the island.

Among the effects of the passage of the flames, the Franz Weber Foundation has estimated that more than 15,000 wild animals and some domesticated animals may have already died in the mountains of Tenerife, according to the predictive models of Professor Christopher Dickman, from the University of Sydney (Australia).

On the other hand, the damaged pines are canaries, which have a high resistance to fire and, if they do not burn completely, they will recover in just a few years. However, the image that the flames now leave behind is that of a charred, black landscape, waiting for the heat to subside and for the absence of strong winds to allow the more than 200 ground troops and 13 air control and extinguish the flames in the coming days.
