This afternoon an important fire broke out in the Las Heras department, in a waste processing plant next to a sawmill on Matheu Street, between the streets Álvarez Condarco and Lisandro Moyano.
The preliminary information indicates that the origin of the fire would lie with the burning of fields in the area. The flames spread and would have reached the house and would extend to the sawmill.
A large cloud of black smoke covers the area and several crews of firefighters work on the spot to smother the flames.
Fortunately no injuries were recorded and, although there are still some small fire points in the area, the flames would already have been checked by the firefighters.
