This morning, Concep was part of the Vitacura commune in the Agua del Palo area in the Metropolitan area, and two fires in the 2th Manquare city affected by a 6 hectare area.
In the fire, according to Hugo Castill, the head of the forest fire control unit, he worked on three brigades, three planes and three helicopters (steam and truck) rather than his perimeter, plus six firefighters.
The work of the crews was complicated taking into account the harsh topography of the relief of up to 90 degrees.
Social networks describe how the flame detected from homes.
