PJ police guarantee no "human hand" in Monchique fire

PJ police have guaranteed there was no "human hand" in last year’s massive Monchique fire.

In a statement, PJ police confirmed the investigation into the August fire in Monchique, which spread to Portimão and Silves, concluded that "there was no wilful human action at its origin".

It said the investigation is ongoing, but a report drawn up by the Independent Technical Observatory (OTI), set up by Parliament to monitor forest fires, indicates an electricity cable as the probable cause of the fire.
