Feijóo will access the El Rayo forest trail, in the municipality of Los Realejos (north of the island), and at 5:40 p.m. he will address the media in the company of the vice president of the Cabildo, Lope Afonso, and the mayor of Los Realejos, Adolfo González, both from the PP.

The fire originated on August 15 and led to the evacuation of some 13,000 people and since it went down to level 1 it has been managed by the Tenerife Cabildo, which has a device of more than 70 personnel and two helicopters to try to checked.

This same Tuesday, the Council of Ministers plans to declare Tenerife and other territories affected by forest fires and floods as a “catastrophic zone” until August.

The declaration of a “catastrophic area” – declaration of an area seriously affected by a civil protection emergency – implies the adoption of measures such as aid to alleviate the costs of damage to homes or economic production, compensation to administrations for expenses or tax credits.
