Fire in Tomas de Concón
In addition, another fire affected a intake ground in Concón, where one of the houses was completely destroyed by flames.
Although it is still not recognized who lived in the place, located near the sea in the Las Gaviotas sector, four fire companies mobilized to control its spread.
This was explained by the Second Lieutenant Miguel Acosta, of the Second Company of the Quintero Fire Department.
After the intense maneuvers that the personnel of two companies from Quintero and Viña del Mar had to carry out, due to the difficulties in accessing the place, the volunteers were finally able to control the emergency that had the risk of expanding to the rest of the houses.
