Fires near Scopello?

We are staying outside Scopello and are looking for fire information. Cannot find websites online with updates. Our restaurant said Zingaro Reserve Beach burned yesterday and we saw the fire above Scopello. The sky is pretty smoky this morning. Any tips on update sites?

Find advisories on the Protezione Civile website.

And then the press.

Thank you so much! I couldn't find this local website on Google. This is the exact info I was looking for - this Reserve fire was near us and sky gray with smoke. Really appreciate it. All clear skies now!

Prego AmyH35,

Fortunately it's under control, and cleared, and no one has been hurt.

The 2012 fires in Zingaro closed the reserve for quite awhile.

best regards,

Vagabonda
