The carabinieri have opened an investigation into the continuing cases of waste fires in the third Peep area of Partinico, in the heart of the public housing in the Raccuglia district. At the same time, the Municipality, through the municipal police, is carrying out a series of checks on the level of contrasting the environmental degradation of the neighborhood. For years now this vast neighborhood has become a sort of powder keg, a real ecological bomb.
Two days ago yet another raid
Just two days ago there was yet another fire in a pile of waste. Someone has purposely accumulated scraps of all kinds and placed them in the center of the space in front of the public buildings and set the fire. On the spot a police patrol and the local detachment of firefighters forced once again to have to tame the flames and above all to block the terrible fumes that came from that heap of waste set on fire. According to what has been leaked for some time now the carabinieri and the municipal police have launched coordinated investigations to block this custom which has become extremely dangerous. The combustion of certain waste, in fact, can release dioxin, a carcinogenic molecule for the human body.
Waste in the open
It is clear that the open space in via Carlo Alberto Dalla Chiesa is used by someone as a sort of open-air dump. Mattresses, wire nets, furniture, appliances: there is everything, even old iron. Evidently someone also uses this place to store material to be eventually resold, such as iron. And fires are set cyclically to get rid of waste that is no longer usable.
In recent months the disaster
During this summer there was a serious fire that spread from this neighborhood to the surrounding areas until it reached the municipal villa of “Pino”. It happened in one of the many days of sirocco where the strong wind ended up sending various sparks flying from that umpteenth fire set in the waste. It was particularly difficult to stem those fires for firefighters, municipal police and civil protection.CopyAMP code.
