13 year olds suspected of setting fires in Sintra

Three 13-year-olds have been identified on suspicion of two forest fires in the town of Nafarros in the municipality of Sintra

In a statement, the GNR said that, “following due diligence” by the authorities, “it was found that the young people are suspected of being in the immediate vicinity of the ignition of the fire, moments before the start of the ignition and allegedly provoked the fires”.

This fire resulted in a total burned area of about 1.5 hectares, belonging to the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, in the district of Lisbon.


It's not as if fires were exceptional in this country, is it. At that age, on knows what starting a fire implies!
