Fires on the Camino!

For those who are walking the Camino now, I'm sure you have heard there are quite a number of active fires burning, especially on the stretch around Triacastela and Samos.

This was posted on the forum today:



Here is a real time NASA fire map:



Pilgrim Mark McIlroy posted this you tube video today:



The news I've heard is that an out-of-work fireman 
started many of these.
We've also heard rumors of a pilgrim flicking a cigarette
and starting the one near Samos.

If you hare headed that way, 
please check with locals before walking today.
The smoke is not healthy for breathing,
and getting caught in a forest fire
isn't my idea of adventure.

Take care pilgrims,
and Buen Camino!
Annie
